Castagnole delle Lanze, between Langa and Monferrato: adopt a row of Barbera in the “home” of Nomadi.
Castagnole delle Lanze lies on the edge of the Langhe and Monferrato.
It is 23 km from Asti, the provincial capital.
During the medieval period, Castagnole delle Lanze belonged to the Counts of Loreto.
Later, from the thirteenth century, the Municipality was dominated by the City of Asti and closely followed its fate.
A century later, Castagnole passed to the Visconti and then, in 1573, to the Savoy.
This date is important because it marks the moment when Castagnole enters the influence of two seigniories: the Asinari and the Catalano Alfieri.
Finally, from 1850, the history of Castagnole delle Lanze was influenced by the Savoy and by the constitution of the Kingdom of Italy.
