Ottosoldi is a young Piedmontese winery founded by 2 talented and passionate brothers, Stefano and Massimo Moccagatta. They created 'Ottosoldi' as a niche brand that ties together tradition, terroir, and the production of quality wine. Their grandfather, who purchased the small plot of land they now cultivate to make this very wine, referred to the land as 'Otto soldi' (eight coins), the expression signifying that it was worth a fortune. In honor of his story, they named their flagship Gavi "Ottosoldi".  The Ottosoldi estate is surrounded by the rolling hills of Gavi, a place rich in wonderful sites and fascinating landscapes. The Ottosoldi’s vineyards cover 5.1 hectares, at  250-300 metres above sea level and represent one of the most unique terroirs of Monferrato, with a mix of marlstone and limestone that gives a wonderful richness and freshness to their Gavi. The average age of the vines is around 20 years old, with a southwest exposure, one of the best for achieving the proper ripeness of Cortese.
