The Marquises Cattaneo Adorno Giustiniani have been engaged in wine production for at least 4 centuries on an estate that extends over the territory of Gabiano for 260 hectares, of which 22 are vineyards.
The production of wine has a millenary tradition in these lands , as proved by the ancient municipal registers, which confirm the sale of vineyards and grapes since 900 AD.
The Casalese Monferrato or lower Monferrato is a hilly system between 120 and 350 meters above sea level, with some higher elevations (the Castello di Gabiano in Gabiano), and is located in the heart of the temperate belt: the 45th parallel crosses the town of Vignale Monferrato.
The Alps and the sea (respectively about 130 and 90 km) influence the climate of Monferrato and make it optimal for the vine plant.
In fact, the semicircle of mountains offers protection against storms from the North and West, for which the annual rainfall is limited to about 600-700 mm of rain; winters are relatively mild compared to latitude, with lows of a few degrees below zero and, usually, snowfalls are modest.
