A culture of welcoming
Tenuta Carretta is proud to be part of The Grand Wine Tour, the first platform in Italy to focus on top wineries in the country. It is a mark of excellence in hospitality and wine tourism, with 20 top Italian wineries in association. The wine becomes the inspiration for an experience, for a story of the land. The Grand Wine Tour is a project that speaks of the most important wine areas in Italy, through the eyes of those looking for the beautiful in all its forms. The Grand Wine Tour is also a digital magazine, exclusively written in English, with a social media presence that highlights all the wineries that are a part of the project. The magazine and social media accounts present a multitude of themes, not just those linked to food and wine in Italy, but also travel, fashion, culture, lifestyle and art.
The enoteca – Wine shop
Situated in a particularly welcoming environment, it is the true entrance to discovering Tenuta Carretta. The wine shop offers the opportunity to taste and directly purchase all the wines in the winery’s range, as well as the products from the other two companies owned by the Miroglio family: the Malgrà winery with its 35 hectares of vineyards between Mombaruzzo and Nizza Monferrato in Asti, specialized in the production of Nizza DOCG and Barbera d’Asti, as well as Moscato d’Asti, Asti and Brachetto d’Acqui and the Edoardo Miroglio Winery of Elénova in Tracia, Bulgaria. The terrains of Elénova (160 hectares of vineyards, 250 km southeast of Sofia) are optimal for some of the most famous international varieties (Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Sauvignon Blanc) as well as for lesser known native Bulgarian varieties (Mavrud, Rubin & Bucket).
All the wines, but not only…
However, it’s not only wine; there is also a small but curated selection of speciality foods from the Langhe and Roero. The wine shop also offers the opportunity to take a break, to totally relax.
Consult the maps of the vineyards or the vine-trekking routes, look through the showcase of the winery’s old labels, Pliny’s ancient press or the shelves full of tempting goods and large format bottles of wine.
Finally, in Tenuta Carretta’s Wine Shop it is possible to choose between the different “tasting flights”, exciting relays of glasses designed take guests on a route to discover our wines.
Reservations are required for visits and tastings.
