WINERY TOURS

Discover the heart of piedmont!

The winery of Castelnuovo Don Bosco is proud to be able to extend its hospitality to individuals, and small and large groups of visitors, in the form of personalised tours and tastings.

We are eager to offer you a warm, genuine welcome, particularly so if you are curious, since we are proud to complement the “fragrances and flavours” of Terre dei Santi with the discovery of our native grape varieties, some of them exceedingly rare. We would love to give you in-depth information about them, curious anecdotes, and, of course, delicious tastings.

We can handle even large groups, thanks to our bus parking area, equipped lawn area, rest rooms, and a tasting room that can accommodate over 60 tasters. And every space is handicap-accessible.

Cellar tours


The tours begin at the wine cellar entrance, where we demonstrate the winemaking process and its major steps. Proceeding through the traditional fermentation area with its original concrete vats dating back to1953, you will then see new technology and our modern equipment, including specialised stainless-steel fermenters, and the fascinating barrel room, with its oak ovals and barrels for maturing the wines. Here is where you can taste a selection of Terre dei Santi’s main wines, and then conclude your visit in our retail room. 

Always available during our retail shop hours

During the times we are open to the public, visitors are welcome to sample Terre dei Santi wines at our tasting counter and purchase them in our retail shop. The tasting is accompanied by selections of our locally-produced food specialties.
