A break to relax in Langhe Monferrato Roero, among beautiful world heritage vines landscapes, great wines and typical products. The Langhe, Roero and Monferrato Hills, with their wavy landscapes shaped by the combined action of nature and man, have become part of the World Heritage.

Authentic heart of Piedmont and cradle of the Slow Food philosophy, in the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato are cultivated varieties of Nebbiolo, Barbera, Barolo and Arneis, from which arise wines with a unique aroma and taste, appreciated throughout the world, which can be tasted in the territory in the regional wineries and cellars.

These lands are also known for the typical culinary delicacies: the product that is undoubtedly the king is the Alba white truffle, to which is dedicated the International Fair.

Montegrosso d'Asti

Historical Outline

The name, by the plain meaning of “Mount” and “Big”, has its first evidence in the documents of the mid-twelfth century with MONSGROSSUS and MONTISGROSSIJ.

 

It was part of the ancient county of Loreto, which extended from Rocca d’Arazzo to the Marchesato of Saluzzo, until 1149, when Ottone Boverio ceded part of his feudal rights to the town of Asti. It was occupied by the Marquis of Incisa, then in the fourteenth century the Guelphs and Ghibellines fought in its territory and, around the middle of the same century, Balduccio, the bishop of Asti, granted as a feud to the Marquis of Ceva.

 

A branch of the Asti family, the Roeros, was the first feudal lord, but in 1693 a part of the estate passed to Philip Giacinto Gonteri Marquis of Cavaglià, and the other came to Niccolò Coardi, Earl of Quarto.
