Casina Bric, which in Piedmontese dialect means "Cascina Bricco", is a reality of the Langhe located in Vergne, a hamlet of Barolo, where the winery is located at the highest altitude in the area, 460 meters above sea level.
Gianluca Viberti, a sensitive and passionate viticulturist and oenologist, founded Casina Bric in 2010, giving life to a project that has always been close to his heart: to create a place that respects nature in every aspect, affecting it as little as possible. For us, this is a basic requirement.
The result is a conscious reality, attentive to tradition, in which Gianluca has reintroduced ancient customs and methods, such as the use of cement barrels for the vinification of Nebbiolo. He also makes extensive use of long macerations, even prolonged up to 40 days, and a traditional practice called "splinting of the marc", which consists of completely immersing the cap of the marc in the wine through wooden staves from the dismantling of used barrels.
