Cascina Ca’Rossa

ROERO – Località Ca’ Rossa, 56 – Canale d’Alba (CN) –

Cascina Ca’Rossa is located in Canale, in the heart of Roero, known in the past for its fruit cultivation, today better known as one of the most important wine producing areas of Piedmont.
The winery was founded in 1967 when Alfonso Ferrio, Angelos father, bought a farmhouse that was called Ca’Rusa, in piemontese dialect ‘red house’, because it was built of red brick.
Alfonso was mainly occupied with cultivating peaches, hazelnuts and a small quantity of wine that was sold in bulk.
In 1992, with the help of the son Angelo, they began bottling and creating their own labels of Arneis and Bracchetto. Due to conflicts and different ideas on how to optimize production, in 1995, Angelo took the control of the winery and decided to decrease the quantity  in order to give more space to the quality. In the following years he was able to introduce more changes and to modernized the winery with stainless steel temperature-controlled tanks, French oak barrique and Slavonian oak large barrels.
In 2012 the Organic Certification was awarded, another significant milestone for Cascina Ca’Rossa.
Today the winery owns 16 hectares
