The Azienda Agricola Monsupello laid its foundations over a century ago, in 1893, when the Boatti family in Cà del Tava in the municipality of Oliva Gessi was already cultivating its own vineyards. In 1914, the Boatti family purchased another estate a few kilometres away called "Podere La Borla" in the municipality of Torricella Verzate. Here they set up the winery, the same one that today has been upgraded and modernised for the vinification of grapes from the original estates and those purchased gradually.
In 1959, Carlo Boatti, representing the third generation of winegrowers, now assisted by his children Pierangelo and Laura, gave the company further development and modernised it by acquiring new land in the municipalities of Casteggio, Redavalle and Pietra de' Giorgi. He redesigned the varietal structure with the introduction of new grape varieties, implemented new cellar structures, and built a modern wine-making, bottling and storage plant. The company is constantly evolving according to current market requirements.
Monsupello is located in the first hilly central area of Oltrepo Pavese at 160 metres above sea level -45° parallel. The vines cultivated are: Barbera, Croatina, Uva Rara, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Nero, Pinot Grigio, Riesling Italico, Riesling Renano, Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Moscato. The soils: calcareous tufaceous with Pliocene marl, the exceptional microclimate and excellent exposure create optimal conditions for the production of top quality grapes. Traditional winemaking for reds and pneumatic winemaking for whites: temperature-controlled fermentation in modern stainless steel tanks, autoclaves and barriques.
Monsupello has been awarded 112 gold medals in wine competitions. Monsupello Brut Metodo Classico was awarded at the V Banco di Assaggio in Torgiano 1985 and won the Douja d'Or Oscar in Asti in 1993.
Its wines are present in highly qualified restaurants both in Italy and abroad and in highly professional wine shops.
