Who we are

Taia is the nickname my grandparents and parents called me as a child, but only on occasions when I did something good.
And even though I am no longer a child, Cantina Tàia wants to be ‘something good’, it wants to be quality and constant attention to detail.

Even though up until now my primary profession had little to do with wine, it has taught me how important it is to work in a team, to have a group of close-knit collaborators, experts in their sector and who have the same objectives.

Teamwork is what allows Cantina Tàia to be what it is; it starts from the vineyard, which my father Alberto has been following for years and from which I am ‘stealing’ secrets which, in turn, he stole from his father and grandfather; vineyard that could not be cared for and looked after as it is without the help of Ilirian, a collaborator in our company for more than 20 years.
For winemaking, Nicola Biasi, a competent oenologist who carries out his work with passion and dedication.
And then Luca and Mauro (Enografica), two friends who immediately believed in Tàia and who, thanks to their professionalism, translated the spirit of Tàia and its wines into graphics.

Oltrepò Pavese

The company extends over approximately 15 hectares between the municipalities of Montecalvo Versiggia and Santa Maria della Versa on the hills of the Oltrepò Pavese, an area dedicated to viticulture since 40 BC. Our vineyards, with an average age of 20 years but with vines that reach 55 years of age, are located between 300 and 600 meters above sea level; the white grape varieties are found at higher altitudes to benefit from a greater daily temperature range, especially during the ripening phase of the grapes. The exposure is mainly south-west to make the most of the sun’s rays.

The type of soil is very varied with a predominance of limestone; each vine has a type of soil to which it is best suited. In general it is said that white grapes want white soil (and therefore more calcareous) while red grapes want red soil (and therefore more clayey).

Among the vines we grow, pinot noir reigns supreme; a vine that is well suited to the soil and climate environment typical of our area, and which we use, with different clones, both for red vinification and for our sparkling wine base. Added to it are Barbera and Croatina for the red grapes and Riesling Renano, Chardonnay, Moscato and Pinot Grigio for the whites.
