merenda con corvi
On the steep hill of Monteoliveto, which forms the backdrop to the city of Pinerolo, at 420m above sea level, taking advantage of the excellent exposure to the south, the SOCIETÁ AGRICOLA BEA was born in 1999 from the pre-existence of a small winery, with the aim of restoring prestige to a territory that has always been suited to viticulture.
On the edge of the bustle of the city, in addition to the cellar, there is the important project of 3 prestigious apartments born from the respectful renovation of the original farmhouse, to welcome curious travelers in search of tranquility and comfort. Francesco Romano, has redesigned with the eyes of the dreamer the natural and architectural geometries of the spaces to achieve his dream.
Merenda con Corvi was born from the love for the land and the passion for viticulture
The land that was missed by the fathers of previous generations and which for this very reason made the bond so deep in Francesco; union that he lives with passion that he passes on to his children so that one day they can continue with the same intensity.
Not an oenological tradition, nor an exaggerated search for new commercial activities, but a dream and enthusiasm that gave life to the SOCIETÁ AGRICOLA BEA; born in 1999 from the pre-existence of a small winery, it wants to restore prestige to an area already suited to viticulture in the 18th century. Of the three hectares that make up the property (420 m a.s.l.), just over a third are vineyards: the rows follow one another on the steep hill of Monteoliveto which forms the backdrop to the city of Pinerolo, taking advantage of the excellent southern exposure.
the wine cellar
Work, care and dedication: these are the most important ingredients that chisel the character of our wines
A precious reality where the pursuit of excellence and attention to detail are almost obsessive.
This challenge has led us to favor Barbera, the most representative Piedmontese grape variety, and to experiment, in small quantities, with international grape varieties, Merlot and Pinot Noir, which most fascinate us, as well as a “pop” Nebbiolo made from Picoutener and Chiavennasca grapes, adopting the most advanced cultivation techniques combined with respect for ancient traditions, useful for achieving the highest quality levels.
Since the objective is quality and not quantity, Merenda con Corvi has chosen to halve the yield per hectare foreseen to be regulated, it follows that the total annual production does not exceed 3500 bottles.
The newly built cellar is technologically advanced, as are the winemaking techniques: fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, aging in French oak barriques, bâtonnage technique for pumping over the fine lees.
The aging times are slow and typical of the longest-lived Piedmontese vines, the wine is bottled the second year after the harvest and marketed after a year of rest in glass.
Located in Pinerolo, on the Piedmont hills, 30 km from Turin, …la beccata is a prestigious structure, which includes a 19th century farmhouse and 3 hectares of land.
The spacious, fully furnished apartments with panoramic views have free private parking and an outdoor swimming pool (reserved for guests), overlooking the town of Pinerolo and the plain.
During your stay you will have the opportunity to visit the cellar and taste our wine.
The rows of vines and olive trees act as a backdrop to the residence, embellished with a collection of ancient roses, magnolias and rare oaks, and several panoramic stopping points that allow you to enjoy the view that our hill gives us.
COMBINATION WITH ART
The precious friendship with Luigi Stoisa and the collaboration with other artists and architects, who have become friends over the years, have contributed to the charm of the places, and make the rows and residences spaces for “permanent exhibitions”.COMBINATION ART-WINE
