Associazione Indigenous Langa
A glass of wine with roots that dig into the soil of a hill illuminated by the sun: with this image, which represents the wines derived from local vine varieties and their authenticity, the Associazione Indigenous Langa, founded in 2015, presents itself.
The organization unites the producers of Nascetta who share the common objective of protecting and endorsing the Nascetta vine variety and its wine products. “The wines produced from the Nascetta vine,” reads the Charter, “represent an economic, touristic, and cultural resource and for its unique characteristics it is also a defense of tradition and the local environment.” Driven by this imperative, Indigenous Langa proposes to univocally protect and promote, in its first phase of life, the rediscovered Nascetta vine and its denominations in order to develop its production, protection, research, distribution, and image at a regional, national, and international level.
Soon the organization will be extended to other local Langa vine varieties specifically to preserve and promote what our territory offers.
Wine & Grape
Our WebTV uncovers the history of the ancient Nascetta variety and the characteristics of Langhe Nascetta DOC wine, in this series filmed from the agricultural, geological, organoleptic and culinary points of view. The interviews are with several experts who have participated in the discovery of this little-known grape. Professor Anna Schneider of the National Research Council, Professor Vincenzo Gerbi of the University of Turin, Edmondo Bonelli, geologist and Mauro Carosso of the Piedmont chapter of the Italian Association of Sommeliers are just a few of the experts who have contributed and whom we would like to thank.
