ABOUT: “Cascina Sciulun” is located inside the Langhe, in the hamlet of Bussia di Monforte d’Alba. It is an ancient piedmontese farm, built in the mid-XIX century and expanded in the’40s. It has always been the home of the Coterno family that, starting from the grandfather Pietro, had cultivated beautiful vineyards around the farm with the Nebbiolo grape, and had produced wines of rare elegance and prestige. Today, Franco Conterno manages 18 hectares of vineyard, with the help of his wife Vilma. The cultivation is traditional,
with a high respect for the environment but without neglecting what modern technology offers.
The nature of the land, its good exposure (80% of the vineyards are exposed at South-South/West) together with the extraordinary microclimate of the area and the wise, traditional vinification, give Franco Conterno wines unique and precious organoleptic features.
A part of the old manor has been opened for agritourism .
All of this happens in a familiar environment, among the “Langhe” green hills, far away confusion and noise.
