In Colle Manora a set of values Italy is worldwide renowned for has found its synthesis: quality, style, passion.

This proud historical territory teams its indigenous grapes with the aromatic fantasies of various international varieties and produces wines with specific characteristics: Italian style inspired by the creative drive of Mila Schön, the “Lady of Fashion”; while the owners’ passion for red racing cars is expressed in the label: a simple stroke of a red pen next to a bunch of grapes.

The property dominates the hill at the center of an amphitheater formed by vines, bordered on the North and East by woods with acacia, oak, and wild cherry, creating a unique landscape between the historical boroughs of Quargneto and Fubine Monferrato. 21 of its approximately 75 hectares are planted with vines and enjoy a very favorable microclimate.

A wine history between fashion and motors

Every wine of Colle Manora tells us a story related to a different world, that is Haute Couture and Famous Motors. It’s Mila Schön’s life, the “Lady of fashion”, as well of her son Giorgio, a real o gentleman-driver, and Marina Orlandi Contucci, a “Wine Woman” (and not only). The matching between experience and passions has generated the own identity of the cellar and every label. 

Elegance, is the most researched emotion in any glass. From hues to length of flavour, every element of tasting contributes to a sensation of harmony and richness. Vintages on the labels are named “Collections”, similarly to Fashion, as they change at any harvest-time, never the same, always excellent and inspired.

Power is the most exalting aspect of any tasting. A tribute devoted to motors, both the racing cars and rally’s engines, which represent a key element in Marina and Giorgio’s life and passions. Time resistance, a sensation of energy, as well as wine structure and alcoholic power, enrich our minds in the same way we have filled our glasses.

Author’s grapes varieties

Every vineyard is cared pursuing the principles of integrated farming, focused on low use of crop protection products and on manual handling.

The indigenous grapes varieties are the real cornerstone of the winery. Barbera Monferrato gives life to the young Pais, while Barbera d’Asti Superiore is honored to be named as Manora, a wine loved for its finesse and elegance. Albarossa monovarietal give births to Ray: a Barbera crossing conceived for Nebbiolo Dronero, created by Prof. Dalmasso, authorized for planting out only at the beginning of year 2000 and now cultivated in a few hectares.
As it often happens in historical wineries, the experimentation of famous international grape varieties couldn’t be missing. The planting out of the first Sauvignon Blanc in Piedmont showed that Monferrato was able to produce a marvelous fragrant and very fascinating white wine that is Mimosa.
Then Mila, born from Viognier, the promised Chardonnay’s bridegroom, honoring with its great finesse the fashion designer, whom it is dedicated, in a very happy marriage. Chardonnay is the soul of Double Bubble, never failing bubble, with its label from Zagato’s car designer pen, and characterized by the double hump of his models.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot perfect power shine in Giorgio’s masterpiece Rosso Barchetta, devoted to his infinite passions for roaring engines. Pinot Nero, on the contrary, is Palo Alto’s heart, an ample, deep, and austere wine produced only in the best vintages.  

The overview is concluded with Piangalardo, an inebriating Barolo born from a very limited production of Nebbiolo Langhe.
