Hic et NuncThe Hic et Nunc winery is located in Vignale Monferrato, in the heart of the Basso Monferrato, the birthplace for Barbera and Grignolino, the iconic varieties of these hills. Here in the tenuta Ca’ Milano, the entrepreneurial project of the Rosolen family came to life in 2012: the purchase of 100 hectares in the Mongetto area saw the reorganization and restoration of a viticultural heritage (now 21 hectares) and the construction of a cellar avant-garde, aimed at giving a new voice to the native varieties of Monferrato, making wine in purity, Barbera, Grignolino, Freisa, Dolcetto, Cortese, and Nebbiolo. This vision is completed with the wine resort Ca’ dell’Ebbro, a structure immersed in the vineyards of the winery, expressing a fundamental part of the philosophy of Hic et Nunc: the taste of the present, the value of experience, and living in the here and now.
