It was in 1977 that Beppe, one of the sons of Adolfo and Caterina Massasso, had the happy idea of bringing together the vineyards belonging to his grandparents, Giovanni and Alessandro, located on ‘Brichet’, the sunniest of the hill crests in Repergo di Isola d'Asti.
This unique position gave its name to the family company: the Azienda ‘Vigneti Brichet di Massasso e Figli’, which has been cultivating its own vines with care, passion and professionalism for generations.
Since 1977 Vigneti Brichet have been awarded some of the most important prizes for their wines. 1985 saw the first Festa della Vendemmia, our own wine harvest festival.
The winery is continually expanding: more farmhouses have been bought, new vineyards planted, the cellars expanded and their equipment updated using the latest technology; modernization of the organization has ensured improved customer service.
Today Vigneti Brichet is a modern company that is in the forefront of technology in the field of winemaking.
A major ambition of the Massasso family is to maintain the authenticity and quality of their products at the highest level whilst respecting the environment and the laws of nature, participating in the programme of production with low environmental impact (integrated development) under EC regulation No1257/99.
The winery is made up of four farmhouses surrounded by vineyards: ‘Il Cavaliere’, ‘La Dama’, ‘Massasso’ and ‘Vigneti Brichet’, as well as an olive plantation that since 1989 has been producing extra-virgin olive oil of exceptional quality.
We are open all the year round. During the year you can make an appointment to visit the vineyards and cellars as well as enjoy guided tastings.
When you come to Vigneti Brichet you will discover what is a new world for you, but everyday life for the Massasso family; for them their daily life is a constant commitment to strive for quality so as to bring a ray of sunshine to your table!
