Located in Coazzolo, a small village in Asti, you find the winery. It bears the name of Emilio, a young and gifted winegrower of his generation, but it is safe to say it is a family-run winery, with Milva and Roberto wholly engaged in the vineyard and cellar, and Giulia (Emilio’s sister) chipping in when required.
Emilio’s family has been winegrowers for four generations, and you find this experience and tradition present in their wines today. All made with respect for territory and heritage, with an underlying desire to continually experiment and improve. And, of course, employing sustainable winemaking practices.
Since 2012, when Emilio “took over”, they went from simply selling the fruit, to bottling their own wines. Moreover, they decided to revive the tradition of growing red grape varieties as well, in addition to Moscato. Today, they grow Moscato, barbera, dolcetto, and Nebbiolo.
Because of the location, being just on the border of the two historical wine regions – Langhe and Monferrato – Emilio Vada produces Moscato d’Asti, Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Asti, and Langhe Nebbiolo.
Coazzolo, a tiny town located east of Neive, is perhaps most famous for the small church at the top of the hill. Similar to the Barolo Chapel overseeing the Brunate vineyard, the church has been painted by the British artist, David Tremlett.
