ALTA LANGA CONSORTIUM – Alta Langa Docg is the high quality dry sparkling wine from Piedmont. Born in a beautiful winegrowing area in the high hills between the provinces of Cuneo, Alessandria and Asti, it has a very long history: it was the first metodo classico sparkling wine to be made in Italy, way back in the mid-18th century. The Alta Langa Consortium is a small organisation which runs very smoothly. It currently has 85 members, all of whom are active and involved in the development of a wine, an appellation and a terroir. All united by a single aim: to create a wine which takes six years to be ready for sale, meaning that it absolutely has to be an important wine.
Enamoured of our land, we have launched a sustainable viticulture in harmony with the delicate, biodiverse structure of the Alta Langa and its ideals, respecting and enhancing the rhythms of nature.
Piedmont’s finest sparkling wine is the fruit of this philosophy and this work. Available in white, rosé, brut and pas dosé versions, it spends a long time ageing on yeasts, as stipulated in the very strict regulations governing its production.
This long wait demands patience and, in this case too, all the Alta Langa producers second the rhythms of the traditional farming calendar. Members of the Consortium include sparkling wine producers Avezza, Banfi, Bera, Brandini, Bretta Rossa, Paolo Berruti, Giulio Cocchi, Enrico Serafino, Fontanafredda, Gancia, Germano Ettore, Martini & Rossi, Monteoliveto, Pianbello, Tosti, Colombo Cascina Pastori, Roberto Garbarino and Giribaldi.
Alta Langa’s partners are Eurostampa and Verallia.
