Travaglino is the oldest winery of the Oltrepò Pavese area, which today cultivates over 80 hectares of vineyards immersed in a rural and wooded landscape of pristine beauty. Travaglino is located in a magic line, a fertile and vital strip of land in Calvignano, in the suitable vineyards of the hills above. Travaglino is a meaningful name: it orginates from the Piedmontese "travaj" word (work) and it also indicates a particular variety of grapes. Travaglino winery has its roots in a millenary tradition, a vibrant reality that has been able to keep up with the times, aware of the immense value of its terroir and the great depth of its heritage, aware of the need to evolve, according to their own style, catching opportunities of contemporary research and experimentation.
With 400 hectares, of which 80 are vineyards, 12 owned farmhouses, one historic village and one inn: Travaglino is a universe of emotions, where men and landscape demonstrate the complexity and beauty of a territory rich in history, traditions, taste and an extraordinary wine vocation. From a medieval monastery to a nineteenth-century wine estate. From an efficient wine cellar to a wine tourism complex. Travaglino is constantly working on the enhancement of the lively and striking personality of the territory expressed in its most representative grape varieties: Pinot Nero and Riesling Renano. A choice that favors attention to its homeland, its biodiversity, the intrinsic qualities that the landscape is able to transfer into the glass, so much so that the company has chosen to convert all the Riesling Italico vineyards with Riesling Renano selected directly by German clones. In addition to these two great vines, there are also Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Croatina and Barbera. Only the best grapes give life to Travaglino products, from prestigious classic sparkling wines to refined wines, all DOCG and DOC.
Alongside a philosophy based on the territory, Travaglino adopts the principles of a low environmental impact, rational and sustainable agriculture, reducing for example the number of treatments to the minimum necessary and following the principles of integrated struggle. a sensibility that respects not only nature but the people who still live and work within the Estate.
