Erpacrife is a young company specialized in the production of classic method sparkling wines which is located in Castagnole Lanze, in the province of Asti. The name is an acronym for four friends: ERik, PAolo, CRIstian and FEderico. Sons of wine producers, they met on the counters of the oenological school of Alba and decided to produce a particular and original sparkling wine obtained from grapes other than those traditionally used. In 2000 they rent about one hectare of vineyard and the first experiments begin. With the first vintage they produce about 500 bottles. The grapes are harvested in advance so that they have a higher acidity, and a part of the base wine is aged in wood. All wines rest on the lees for at least 24 months before being blossomed and all production is characterized by being undosed. 5000 bottles of Herpacrife and 1000 of White Dosage Zero are currently produced.
