Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato D.o.c.g.



For generations the Enrico Riccardo Morando family believes and invests in the Piedmontese viticulture and for years has been passionately dedicated to promoting the indigenous Ruchè. Thanks to this important commitment and continuous study here it come the idea by FRANCO MORANDO about the VEGAN Ruchè version. To produce a VEGAN WINE, the use of all forms of derivative products of animal origin has been banned as for example egg albumin or lysozyme from egg and of course casein. Montalbera leads to birth their VEGAN RUCHE’ directly from the vineyard, with innovative methods of fertilization without using substances by animal origins. The “Technology Adjuvants “ at the end of fermentation are removed. After carrying out their action these substances normally added settle on the bottom of thetank and are then removed from the wine. Obviously, in the VEGAN WINES production, both in the packaging and for the labeling are used natural glues.

The Ruchè Castagnole Monferrato DOCG VEGAN certification is issued by SGS ITALY – STP 005/218 and WE ARE THE FIRST TO CERTIFY “VEGAN” THE RUCHE’ WINE. Again Montalbera acts as an innovator – pioneering and scientifically active also in VEGAN segment.

Innovation is everything. When you are at the frontline you can see which will be the next necessary innovation. ( F.M. )
