This winemaking adventure began with a close friendship between two wine lovers, Tomaso Armento and Marco Tacchino. Both of them come from families in which the love for wine is present from an early age, and decided to embark on an ambitious project, creating the Forti del Vento winery. This estate is located in the Upper Monferrato area, in an imaginary triangle formed by the towns of Ovada, Rocca Grimalda and Castelleto d'Orba, which provides the perfect setting. Right from the start of its activity, the winery decided to embrace the principles of biodynamic agriculture, associating itself with Vinnatur, a reference point for grape certification. Tomaso and Marco believe in ancient agricultural methods and desire to preserve the environment around the winery, protecting woods and hedges, which are ideal habitats for insects that guarantee the survival of biodiversity. Work, respect for the land, identity and territoriality: this is what the wines of the Forti del Vento winery convey.

There are five hectares of vines on a hilly terrain about 300 metres above sea level. This is the environment in which Marco and Tomaso work every day, with the primary objective of maintaining the fertility of the soil. Green manure and grassing are important ways of achieving this, limiting the erosive action of rain. Between the rows of vines various white and red grape varieties are cultivated, among which Dolcetto stands out. This is a variety on which Marco and Tomaso have concentrated their efforts from the beginning, being careful to recover and restore old vines. Then there is Barbera, Chardonnay, Albarossa and Nibiö which is an ancient indigenous Piedmontese grape variety that has almost completely disappeared due to its low production rate. In the cellar, fermentation takes place spontaneously, and there are even some fascinating amphoras destined for the vinification of the Chardonnay label produced by Forti del Vento. Finally, it is worth noting that no sulphites are added during bottling.

Each year, the Forti del Vento winery produces seven very special wines that reflect the grape variety and its potential within each vineyard. These wines strike the palate and are unforgettable for the authenticity of the taste and aromas which, second after second, conquer the nose. The Nibiö "Ventipassi" and the Dolcetto di Ovada Riserva "Ottotori" are the flagships of a range that is definitely worth tasting!
