The Vigne Marina Coppi estate, is located in the countryside of Castellania, a small agricultural village in the province of Alessandria, which was the birthplace of famous cyclist Fausto Coppi, grandfather of the current owners of the winery. The project saw the light in 2000, when Francesco decided to return to his family's places out of love for these beautiful hilly landscapes and cycling. In 2003 he decided to establish the winery starting from a property of a few hectares, with the intention of making traditional wines linked to the history and customs of this area of lower Piedmont. Even today, the production has retained an artisanal character, with a limited number of bottles, cared for with extreme attention, thanks to careful management of the vineyard and meticulous work in the cellar that respects the raw material.

The production area has always been suited to viticulture, thanks to particularly favorable conditions. The hilly area of Castellania enjoys a climate of a continental nature, but mitigated by the influence of sea breezes coming up from the Ligurian coast. Sunny exposures, constant ventilation and the presence of good temperature ranges allow grapes of excellent quality to ripen. The soils are of medium texture, composed of clay-limestone marls and Sant'Agata marls, with the presence of sand, clay and limestone, also typical of the Langhe area. These are very suitable and well-drained soils, which give the wines intensity, structure combined with extraordinary finesse and elegance.

As for the grape varieties, Francesco decided to rely on the advice of local farmers, the historical memory of the area. The choice thus fell on the traditional varieties of the area: Timorasso and Favorita for the white grapes; Barbera, Nebbiolo and Croatina for the red ones. Each grape variety has been planted in the most suitable place, choosing the most suitable rootstocks and proceeding to a creation of rooted cuttings through a mass selection of biotypes historically present in these lands, so as to maintain a link with the viticulture of the past and a wide variety of different clones, which give the wines greater complexity. In the countryside, no herbicides are used and the principles of integrated pest management are applied, trying to limit interventions to the bare minimum. Harvests are carried out manually and winemaking is conducted in a very simple way.
