|Stefano Girola of Poderi Girola winery showing us la Sossala|
This is where country boys, Stefano and his cousin used to spend their summer vacations when growing up, playing the winemakers of course! Sounds like a movie, well, this is rather normal in a region like Piedmont where most of the city people have roots in the mountains and on the hills.

Even to natives and wine connoisseurs, this particular Grignolino and Barbera are quite exceptional. The San Pietro Grignolino charms your nose right away with its fruity and flower aromas. Unlike others, it's low in tannins and very elegant. Wherever you are from and whatever your favorite foods are, most likely they will all pair with it very easily: from fish to meat, pasta and cheeses.
No matter if you are a wine specialist or not, as long as you can tell good from bad, you'll quickly be captivated by these natural wines: your bodies will feel every note and many food pairings will easily come up to your minds.
All you need to do is coming over to the Monferrato wine district and try for yourselves: Stefano and his wines are waiting for you in his vineyards!
