What to expect

"Tenuta Carretta is a member of The Grand Wine Tour Association: a quality brand that certifies hospitality excellence in the best wineries. The Grand Wine Tour is also a magazine online.”

La Tenuta Carretta is rooted centuries in the past, deriving its name from the noblewoman called “domina Careta” from the Constanzi di Alba Family. The most ancient testimony to the cultivation of grapes for wine in the “cassina Careta” region is found in a notary deed approved by the Count Andrea Damiano on the 28th of November, 1467. This document indicates the start of the history of winemaking on this property with the Miroglio di Alba Family taking center stage from 1985.

Today, its atmosphere and location are certainly two things that render the Tenuta Carretta a unique place. The plot of land rises in an elevated position above the small valley of Piobesa d'Alba. The landscape is marked by small hills covered in vineyards - a truly picturesque vision. The beauty of this natural place inspired the idea of the “Grape’s Road”, a project of vine-trekking between the vineyards of the Tenuta Carretta. This activity allows the guests to discover the authentic beauty of Roero.

At the Tenuta Carretta, wine lovers can familiarize themselves with the principles that guide the wine production and follow the production process itself from the harvesting of the grapes all the way to the bottling of the wine. Guests can choose between various tasting options both in the wine shop and the wine cellar. Here, the wines are produced exclusively from grapes harvested on this land between Langhe and Roero. The wine cellar, for the main part, is underground, covered by a grass lawn, helping to naturally maintain the ideal temperature and humidity for the winemaking process and aging.
