The Ca' dei Mandorli wine reflects both the true characteristics of its origin and a philosophy: considering wine as a product of a territory that hai its best expression in the vineyards and their grapes.
The names of the Ca' dei Mandorli's wines come from the vineyards where the grapes are grown; these names have been found in old cadastral maps or in the memory of the metayers that keep all the charm of long standing traditions: "La Bellalda", perhaps referring to a pretty peasant girl, has always produced Barbera; "Rujà", exposed to the dew, produces Dolcetto; "Dei Giari", gravely land, provides the Moscato; "Pian dei Ronchi", a plateau populated by people called Ronchi, is Chardonnay; and the "Donne dei Boschi", a most fanciful name for the women working in the spinning mill, is a Brachetto vineyard..
