“An ancient convent and a secular tree are the silent witnesses of a story that, with the passing of the seasons, tells of families, men and land...”
— LAURA AND AURELIO TOTAL
DEDICATION TO WORK AND LOOKING
AT THE SKY, WITH THE HELP
OF THEIR SONS SIMONA AND GILBERTO,
THEY HAVE GROWED A SIMPLE LIFE,
LINKED TO THE RHYTHM OF THE EARTH.
Used since the early nineteenth century as a long-standing agricultural company, Cobue was purchased in 1971 by the Gettuli family. The current owner Laura takes care of the estate together with her husband Aurelio Castoldi and their children Simona and Gilberto. Great professionalism and many years of experience, a genuine passion fueled by love for the Earth, are the only elements that the philosophy adopted by the Cobue Agricultural Company adds to the fruits of its estate, values and thoughts to guarantee a high quality product that does not yield to the flattering compromises of the market. A "Sincere" product.
The farm covers a total area of 25 hectares, more than 17 of which are vineyards, the feather in the cap of Cobue production.
It is the whole Castoldi family with its collaborators, who take care of the vinification of the grapes in the various grape varieties, mainly autochthonous, from which unique and "Sinceri" wines are obtained.
Care of the plantation, tightness of the vines, reduced pruning, selection of the grapes and less and less invasive treatments represent the philosophy and modus operandi of Cobue, in full respect of Nature.
