- Cascina Cà Rossa is an organic winery located in Canale d’Alba, just 15 km from Barolo. The winery was founded by Alfonso Ferrio who bought Cascina “Cà Rusa” (red farmhouse in local dialect) back in the 1960s. At the time the farm produced peaches, hazelnuts and a small quantity of wine (Arneis, Brachetto, Nebbiolo and Barbera) that was sold in 'damigiane' (demi-johns) to other producers in the area. In 1992, after returning from military service, Angelo joined the family business and a wine cellar was built. Under the supervision of his father, Angelo started to focus on quality rather than quantity, applying a stricter grape selection and green harvest practices to produce more concentrated wines. Angelo soon became the master winemaker in the family and a few years later, in 1995, he bottled his first Roero Audinaggio, a 100% Nebbiolo single cru made with the best grapes from Angelo’s parcel in the renown Valmaggiore vineyard, which is today one of his most famous wines.
