The project

The choice of biodynamic farming to the benefit of future generations

Giorgio Rossi Cairo purchased the first vineyards of La Raia in 2003, enthralled by the Gavi hills, an island still untouched by the stringent urbanization that has largely affected our territory. The strong desire to save the typical traits of this landscape and its natural resources stimulated the Rossi Cairo family to choose a preservative restoration for the buildings and to follow the biodynamic farming principles in the vineyards and the wine cellar. The project developed over the years with the establishment of a Steiner school, a service of production and delivery of biodynamic food, an art Foundation and two accommodation structures inside the estate. The commitment to a sustainable and high-quality farming was reinforced in 2015 with the acquisition of Tenuta Cucco in the Langhe region. The Tenuta has been a certified organic farm since 2018 and produces Nebbiolo and Barolo Nebbiolo.
