Profile

Nadia Verrua, la padronina of Cascina 'Tavijn works in an area of the Asti province of Piedmont long forgotten. Fortunately it is an area blessed with old vines and unique varieties. Nadia is young, gifted and very professional. She has taken over the family’s estate where her father still manages the vineyard work. The cellar, however, is all Nadia’s.
