winery TENUTA FORESTA
Hi, I’m Olga, the owner of a small young winery in Piedmont. And now I’ll tell you our story
In 4 words about us
-1-
family
It was a dream of our dad, supported by my elder brother, mom and me. Dad passed away in the very beginning of the project, but we decided to make his dream come true.
-2-
estate
We have 4 hectares of vineyards. We use grapes from a vine, which we take care of all year round
-3-
uncommon wines and ...
We really like to experiment and we succeed a lot. Have you ever tried our skin-contact Viognier, vinified in amphora? Or easy to drink Grignolino?
-4-
... classic interpretation
Of course we make some traditional wine. You couldn’t name more classic for our territory wine than Barbera d’Asti Superiore Colli Astiani
How did we get here?
My dad was an entrepreneur who dreamed of walking through his own vineyards with his beloved wife in his old age. I worked as a project manager in startups …
One sms
One day I receive a message from him: Olga, will you agree to run the winery? Me: mmm, yes, of course, dad (in my mind: in how many years will this happen?..)
2011
Too fast
Just 2 months later, we already signed a contract and were worried that our vineyards were freezing 12 degrees. It took me 9 months more to realize everything, leave my job in IT, and start working with my dad.
2012
I promised
The strong-willed romantic, as I call my father, suddenly passed away on the 3rd December. And only 3 days before that, I promised him that I would not leave the winery.
2013
Reconstruction of the cellar
In April 2014 my brother and I began renovating the cellar. We finished reconstruction work only in 2018.
2014
Our first vintage
Finally, we were able to harvest and carry out the entire production cycle in our own cellar.
2019
