La Vecchia Posta

La Vecchia Posta is a family-run farm and one of the smallest Timorasso producers in the region, producing 9,000 bottles/year (half of their total production).

Established in 2002, they recovered abandoned land and now have 4 hectares of certified organic vines (2 of Timorasso) at 425m altitude and also run an agriturismo (restaurant & B&B) where the wines can be tasted.

The wines are produced using almost exclusively spontaneous fermentation with minimal intervention, only a small amount of sulphites before bottling

La Vecchia Posta produce 2 Timorasso :

  • Il Selvaggio: “The Wild One” from several plots of Timorasso
  • Poggio dello Scagno : single vineyard, small production Timorasso (around 1,500 bottles/year)

In addition to his own vineyard, Roberto also manages vineyards for producers based in other regions in Piedmont with TImorasso vines in Colli Tortonesi
