The passion you drink


Raimondo Cusmano

The passion you drink

The passion for enology has pushed the Cusmano family to look for a place where to chase a dream for years. That dream was our way of making wine. That place was an unexpected corner of Piedmont: Calamandrana, near Asti.

Here our projects have grown, with commitment and over time: our family, our winery and forty-six hectares of vineyards in the sun. That dream still ignites our enthusiasm for wine. For a fine and honest, noble and sincere way of making wine.

Italy is a way of thinking and making wine

A way of thinking

Italy is the homeland of lifestyle, of arts, of culture, creativity and design, of fashion, innovation ad taste above all. Italy means great food and big wines, many of them famous all over the world. Italy is a way of thinking and making wine, the result of a delicate and human balance between art and nature.

The grapes, the age of vines, the perfumes and the energy of the sun reveal the nature of the territory. The art of the man are his hands when he takes care of the vineyard and his mind when he wisely works in the cellar.

Sometimes passion makes us not to believe that the life we are living is the only possible life, not to make do with fantasizing about what could be but is not. As a good Milanese Raimondo Cusmano chose the longest way , to devote himself entirely to a work project in the vineyards and in the winery. The most difficult way but also the most rewarding one.

He has been looking for a suitable place for years and he found it where he did not expect it to be: in Piedmont, Calamandrana, in the heart of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato, which is now a Unesco World Heritage site thanks to its landscape shaped by vineyards.

Today the project has materialized: the estate with 46 hectares of vineyards, the Relais “La Corte”, the winery, and, above all, wine. An overwhelming passion bonds the Cusmano family with this land, a passion that also the new generation of Cusmanos shares, working all together and making sure that what was once a dream, now is even more real.
