Description / History

Did you know that ALEMAT means >He is crazy< in the Piemontese dialect (A l’é Mat)? It is also the first 3 letters of Alessandro and Matteo. The 2 sons of owners Elisabetta and Savio.
The story started back in eighties where Savio was dreaming of his own winery. In 2012 Elisabetta and Savio decided to change their life to achieve their common goal.
Among the vines the family works with a local expert winegrower, while they got one of the best enologists in Italy working with them in the cellar.

ALEMAT is located in Ponzano Monferrato, a historical sub-region in Piedmonte. The estate is organic and sustainable. Equipment has been installed around the estate to harvest energy.

As winemakers-by-choice the family is driven to excel. They produce great wines amongst which the Monferace is the flagship wine.
Monferace is a cooperation between a group of winegrowers in Monferrato. The ambition is to revive the respect of the wines that where once beloved by royalty and the elite.
The first harvest was in 2015. Monferace ages at least 40 months where 24 are in wooden barrels.
