Cantine Hic et Nunc

Hic et Nunc, from the Latin «Here and Now». Because «here», in Vignale Monferrato, is where the Rosolen family decided to start growing vines, not anywhere else; and, they have decided to do it «now», immediately putting this extraordinary land at work.

For more than a century, the plots of the Mongetto Region which refer to Ca’ Milano, just north of Vignale Monferrato, have been planted with vines. Proof are the centuries-old Barbera vines, which have found a home here since the 1920s, In the 1960s, activities specializing in wine production started in Mongetto. In 2016, the first vintages of Barbera del Monferrato, Piemonte Cortese and two sparkling Brut made with local varieties (barbera and grignolino) were launched on the market. The goal was to quit quantity-driven winemaking to ensure excellence, producing classic wines of Monferrato.  They carried on the research work on local varieties, which Hic et Nunc have chosen to process by fully respecting their purity: the Barbera d’Asti, the Dolcetto, the Nebbiolo del Monferrato and, especially, the Grignolino, which marks Vignale as its chosen home.
