Castagnole Monferrato

The town of Castagnole Monferrato is 14 km from Asti, 20 km from Casale and 25 km from Alessandria in the province of Asti in the Piedmont region. Set on a ridge at an altitude of 230 meters above sea level, it is surrounded by a natural amphitheater of lush hills. From here one can admire spectacular nearby peaks in the Alps such as Monviso, Monterosa, Cervino and Mont Blanc. The name Castagnole comes from chestnut trees – or castagni – that used to cover the surrounding hills. Today those woods have been replaced by vineyards. Although it is best known for its agriculture, Castagnole Monferrato is a pretty town resplendent with picturesque views, deep character and many historic buildings, some of them dating back to the fifteenth century. The town grew around its two main churches, and incidentally, is also home to the largest antique wine press in Europe.
