A cellar constructed on six levels

The cellars are the heart of a wine-producing estate, the place where important bottles of wine are born, fruit of committed and professional work in the vineyard.

At the Badia di Morrona, the cellars have been constructed on six different levels, but this will not be immediately evident because they are almost completely below ground thanks to work, much desired by the Gaslini Alberti family, aimed at fully respecting the surrounding environment and landscape

You will enter initially into the fermentation area with its temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and you will already find yourself at the second level, the bottling facilities are below. Two flights of stairs will take you to the third level, where there are other fermentation tanks, smaller in size, utilized for the production of the white wines. On the fourth level you will enter into the large round space which houses the oak casks and small oak barrels utilized for the aging of the estate’s most important wines. You will then arrive at the fifth level where the cement tanks, which many consider particularly suitable for the stocking of the wine before it will be bottled. This is, as well, the level of the estate’s shop where visitors will be able to taste and acquire all of the Badia di Morrona products, including the extra-virgin olive oil. The floor above, which houses the estate “vinsantaia”, the space where the Vin Santo is aged, and is not open to visits.

For those who are interested, the estate also organizes guided visits to the olive press, the vineyards, and the splendid Badia di Morrona monastery, an abbey which goes all the way back to the year 1089.

The estate is open seven days a week for guided visits, though only with an obligatory advance reservation.
