Dacapo was founded in 1997 by Dino Riccomagno and Paolo Dania, two friends, colleagues from the wine trade with a desire to focus on wine different from those made to suit the so-called ‘International taste’, wine increasingly homogeneous, almost without heart. The vineyards are cultivated in a natural way, without fertilizer and forced growing, with low yield per hectare.
Last year, after 20 years of the foundation, a new project started, and in May 2017, for the anniversary, Dacapo merged with another winery based in the Langhe: Cà ed Balos.
Cà ed Balos is an aged farmstead, surrounded by vineyards with an outstanding view of the Alps, located in Castiglione Tinella, the core zone for the production of Moscato d’Asti and refurbished in the nineties by Giovanni and Renata keeping the original structure, style and building materials. They started wine production with Moscato d’Asti in 2008,and progressively widened the product portfolio.
This merge will enable the new entity to offer a wide range of wines from both Langhe and Monferrato. To preserve value on the market the new venture will keep both brands as today.
