Profile

Costadilà ("the hillside over there") was founded by Ernesto Cattel and a group of partners in 2006. Though Ernesto, undoubtedly the brainchild of the whole operation, left us in the summer of 2018, the original partners are still involved and the project continues. They have kept on Alex della Vecchia and Martina Celi: both worked with Ernesto in the vines and cellar and are continuing in his footsteps. While Ernesto's charisma and energy is irreplaceable, it brings us joy to know that his vision is still in capable hands.

Visits

This visit at Costadilà took place in April, 2012.
