Farming Business - Castello degli Angeli

Castello degli Angeli

Farming Business

History

The hill of Santo Stefano, on which the imposing Castello degli Angeli rises, is also home to the vineyard of prestigious local wine company, Carobbio degli Angeli (Bergamo).
The company was founded in 1996 and aimed at producing valuable wines that, thanks to its consumers' appreciation and many international awards from wine competitions such has Vinitaly, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles and Merano Wine Festival - are now synonymous with quality.
Our wines are a marvel of strength and harmony and they tell the story of our vineyard and of all the people working in it. With a surface of 1.8 hectares and 5000 bottles per year, Castello degli Angeli classifies as a micro farming company.

I have always been a careful and hard-to-please wine consumer and today I am happy to make a wine that completely gratifies me.

The vineyard has a gradient of up to 45%. We apply traditional methods to our winemaking process, and grapes are harvested by hand. Pruning, green harvesting, disbudding and late harvesting allow us to make natural wines. The aging process in our canteen, thanks to our modern and innovative technologies, keeps the organoleptic properties of our wines untouched.

Our brilliant enologists, Mr Rainer Zierock first and Mr Fabio Bigolin now, have turned our grapes into a noble expression of wine art.

Castello degli Angeli makes white and red still wines, able to defy time and win the hearts of those whose senses allow them to capture their essence.
