The winery lies in the production area for Ruche, a wine shrouded in legend - its extraordinary qualities are said to have proved decisive in the Lombard victory over the Franks at the battle of Refrancore.
Aside from the tales surrounding its origins, the unique palate, and rich colour and bouquet of this wine makes it one of the gems of Piedmontese DOC wine production.
In this rural location, at the heart of a natural amphitheatre of 10 hectares of superb south-facing vineyards, with the protection of the surrounding hills, Tenuta dei Re produces outstanding quality grapes which it makes into three wines with DOC status (controlled denomination of origin): Ruche di Castagnole Monferrato, Grignolino d’Asti and Barbera d’Asti.
