Villa Carena is a Swiss/Italian joint venture and combines Mediterranean passion with Nordic perfection. The products are not traditional heavy, rustic wines, but easily accessible and balanced wines with an impressive elegance.
The wine region of the former kingdom of Piedmont is located in the southern foothills of the Alps near the Ligurian coast, embedded between the Mediterranean Sea, the Aosta Valley and Savoy. This gave rise to the name, which translates as "in the foothills of the mountains". The proud commercial and industrial city of Turin was the capital of this region in the early days of Italy, and history had already been made here in earlier times. The splendid region still has a lot to offer. All the excellent wines from this picturesque, hilly landscape normally have at least DOC status, nineteen areas even have DOCG status. Specialities such as the Arneis and Cortese di Gavi as well as the simpler Dolcetto d’Alba and the rich Barberas, Barabarescos and Barolos are popular here. The areas of Alessandria, Asti, Cuneo, Torino and Vercelli provide a total of approx. 50'000 hectares of vineyards and produce approx. three million hectoliters of wine per year. The main cultivation area is the Langhe, which is also the home of the delicious white truffle. Another speciality of the region is vermouth, which is produced from a wine base.
