The new Luca Ferraris winery was built quickly in 2009. It was finished on August 31, just in time to press the Viognier on the following day. The switch to a more modern winery was necessary: despite the global economic climate, the company was growing rapidly, thanks in no small to the increasing popularity of Ruchè. The building, 1,000 square meters wide and three stories high, is located on the main road between Asti and Castagnole Monferrato. The cellar and storage room are located underground, where temperature and humidity are constant all year round. The ground floor is where all production, from pressing to bottling, takes place. The latest machinery allows Ferraris to produce the best possible wines without interfering with their natural characteristics. This is possible only with the combination of modern technology and old winemakers knowledge. Luca’s family taught him not to pander to a wider but less-educated public by producing wines which betrayed their varieties’ typical characteristics. Also on the ground floor, behind the bottling line, are the company offices, where Luca Ferraris’ team meets to discuss production and marketing strategies. Above the offices on the first floor is the wine tasting room, which seats up to 30 people. Large windows overlook the production area allowing tasters a view over the winery which reflects the total transparency Ferraris’ production.
