The Massa family for four generations cultivates transforming the vineyard the grapes, grapes that until about 20 years ago they were placed on the bulk wine market. Over time, then he moved the interest in the bottle, with the firm desire to introduce internationally the taste of Tortonese earth. Walter Massa is an independent and courageous vintner who, from the 70s to the leadership of the family winery has managed to change and revive the wine face of an entire area, that of the Tortona hills. The biggest merit of Walter Massa, became an almost legendary figure and considered by many colleagues as a master, was to rediscover a vine that threatened the extinction, Timorasso, sensing the great potential and obtaining memorable wines. Vineyards Massa is the name of the family winery, founded by Walter's ancestors in 1879, which now boasts a 23-hectare property on Monleale hills, about 300 meters above sea level. We find the typical varieties of the area: Barbera, Croatina, Freisa but especially Timorasso, which reserved 10 hectares. In line with the long family tradition and territorial, these vineyards are cultivated with scrupulous attention and much common sense peasant, with minimal treatment. Enemy of all forms of bureaucracy and always against, Walter is convinced that wine is made in the vineyard and in the cellar, and not with brands and documents; why it chose not to use the name for many of its labels, thanks to its well-established reputation as a true craftsman of the wine.
