Padroggi-La Piotta

"La Piotta," situated in Montalto Pavese at the heart of Oltrepò, is renowned for crafting exquisite wines and sparkling varieties. The name "Piotta" likely originates from early Piedmontese settlers in this region, signifying "stone," which abounds in the Oltrepo Pavese fertile soil. Founded in 1985 by Luigi Padroggi "La Piotta" carries forward the distinguished winemaking legacy of the Padroggi family. The vineyards, averaging 30 years in age, yield aromatic whites and robust reds. Notably, a 1930 Pinot Grigio vine planting still thrives, a testament to our unwavering commitment to tradition and the land.
