More About Ca del Baio Winery

the road to Ca del Baio

The Grasso's home and winery are situated in Treiso. Their cru Barbaresco vineyards are located in Treiso (Vallegrande and Marcarini make up 25 hectares, the bulk of their holdings) and the town of Barbaresco proper (Asili and Pora vineyards). The winery produces about 8000 cases a year, about 4000 of which are Nebbiolo and the rest are a combination of Dolcetto, Barbera, Chardonnay, and a bit of Moscato.

The Grassos farm their vineyards using "agricultura integrata" - roughly equivalent to Oregon's sustainable practices. Minimal chemicals are used on the soil and the winemaking usually uses naturally occurring yeasts. Ca del Baio has received the highest ratings from Gambero Rosso, and high scores from Wine Advocate, for their very reasonably priced wines.
