The history of Villa Sparina goes back to the 1700s when it was part of a grand colonial estate immersed in the vineyards of Monterotondo, in the heart of Gavi.


Today, it is the site of the Villa Sparina Wine Resort. The winery, founded in the 1970s by the Moccagatta family comprises of one hundred hectares of land, sixty of which are vineyards, surrounded by woods, refreshed by the Ligurian breeze and kissed by the sun. The majority of the vineyards cultivated are in Monterotondo.

The vines are primarily of the most important local grape variety Cortese, used to make the white wine Gavi DOCG del Comune di Gavi — also known simply as “Gavi”. The soul and prestige of Villa Sparina can be found in their Monterotondo label. This cru wine represents the highest quality of Villa Sparina production, a white wine made with 100% Cortese grapes grown in a 1945-era vineyard. It displays savouriness, minerality and incredible longevity. Their range of wines also includes sparkling wines and the Barbera “Rivalta”, a single-vineyard label obtained from nine hectares of vineyards.

At Villa Sparina, visitors can experience fine-dining at La Gallina Restaurant where the dishes balance creativity with southern Piedmont culinary traditions. Villa Sparina also houses the four-star L’Ostelliere Wine Resort, where guests can have a unique and unforgettable stay in a top Italian wine region.
