Started by the grandfather in the 1950s with the purchase of 1Ha of vineyard in Canale. In a few decades, the Faccenda family emerged as one of the most important wine producers in the Roero area. The choice of vineyards is therefore very deliberate: all six are located in Cru areas: Mompissano in Canale, Valmaggiore in Vezza d'Alba and Ginestra in Monforte d'Alba.

Cascina Chicco offers red, white and “metodo classico” wines, all of them top quality: from the classic Roeros, including a red Roero, a white Roero Arneis, “everyone's friend” Barbera and the “Nebbiolo” king Barolo. The renowned "Gambero Rosso" guide has already written several times with praise for this promising winery.

The Arneis grapes come from the wine is located in. Canale, Piemonte, Italy in the heart of the appellation. Anterisio is a small area of Canale with a very rich history and is considered one of the most important places for the cultivation of Arneis. The soil consists mainly of clay-limestone. After evaluation of the sugar and acidity, the optimal harvest period is determined, but is always in the month of September. The hand-harvested grapes rest overnight in a cold store at 0 - 2°C. The pressing is done the next day. The maceration is done with the skins, which is an interesting choice for a white wine and is more labour-intensive, but it does give the wine more aroma, structure and longevity, and don't forget that the skins also contain healthy antioxidants. Temperatures are deliberately kept very cool in all operations. Takes more time, but the (longer) time ensures a gradual maturation and always produces great wines. The wine ages in stainless steel barrels. This Roero Anreis from Cascina Chicco has a beautiful yellow-green color with fragrant apricot and apple scents in the nose, but after a while we also smell chamomile and herbs. On the palate, this Roero Arneis is juicy and harmonious with a good structure. This Roero Arneis is our favorite next to that of Montaribaldi . Piedmont elegance

Cascina Chicco now has several vineyards with a total area of ​​40 hectares.

In this vineyard, with an area of ​​​​5 hectares, Nebbiolo is planted for their Barolo Rocche di Castelletto.

The wine cellar, with an area of ​​about 1800 square meters, has been completely excavated into the hill. The cellar is therefore partly located under the building and extends almost 30 meters under the hill. It is divided into a labyrinth of corridors, alcoves and rooms. Centrally located in the basement is the beautiful Sala della Ruota. It is a huge dodecagonal space with a dome and a large number of arches. The floor consists of an image of the wheel of the Roero, the symbol of the lords who ruled in this region in the Middle Ages and later. Above a number of niches are paintings depicting different generations of the Faccenda family. The stones used to build the cellar come in part from an old farm that once stood on the property. This ensures the old and authentic look of the cellar.
