The history of Prediomagno wines
The Prediomagno Company was born from the impulse of the spouses Emanuela Novello and her husband Giovanni, with the acquisition of a property with a nineteenth-century Villa overlooking the Castle of Prediomagno.
The owners were deeply convinced in the winemaking vocation of the Basso Monferrato and therefore decided to start producing wines inspired by the territory with a particular focus on the native grape variety par excellence of this area: Il Ruché.
To achieve this mission, a rigorous conservative restoration was carried out on the Villa and the suggestive ancient underground cellars, equipping them with the most modern enological technologies.
The Prediomagno company also boasts prestigious collaborations: Riccardo Cotarella as an oenological consultant, the expert agronomist Daniele Gilberto and the artist Giacomo Bersanetti for the creation of the labels.
The elegant wines of Prediomagno are born today from about 25 hectares of vineyards and are ideal for those looking for Piedmontese wines with an authentic and refined character.
