The Castle of Tagliolo Monferrato, surrounded by its medieval village, dominates with its complex a large area of the Alto Monferrato, an area well known by all wine lovers. The cultivation of the vine on the land of the fiefdom and the production of wine in the large cellar of the Castle date back to an ancient family tradition. It should be noted that, in 1900 and 1937, the wines of the Castello di Tagliolo were presented with a gold medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris.
Castello di Tagliolo History
The first news of Tagliolo dates back to the end of the millennium, when in March 976 the emperor Ottone I granted Monferrato in fiefdom to the Marquis Aleramo I. Over the centuries, Tagliolo knew several feudal lords, including the Spinola and the Doria, passing from the Republic of Genoa to the Duchy of Milan, to the Empire and to Spain. In 1498 Tagliolo was definitively in the possession of the Gentile family who received the title of Counts of Tagliolo. In 1750, following the marriage of Teresa Gentile with Costantino Pinelli, the fief of Tagliolo passed to the Pinelli Gentile family, with the title of Marquis of Tagliolo.
Inside the medieval village of Tagliolo, adjacent to the castle, four elegant guest houses completely renovated respecting the original architectural character, with a large private garden available, where you can admire the vineyards, tasting the fine wines produced in the medieval cellars of the castle. In an authentic atmosphere of great emotional impact, the guest houses will allow you to be the protagonists of unrepeatable moments, away from everyday life, savoring the history of the place that shines through the walls, furnishings, wine, and even people.
The Bigattiera, formerly occupied by the "bigats" (silkworms), is now used for various events such as weddings, business lunches, conferences and more generally for any type of event that can stand out most in the suggestive setting of the Castle of Tagliolo. The elegantly furnished rooms can comfortably accommodate up to 150 people seated, and receptions curated by the best caterings in Northern Italy.
