The Forteto della Luja Farm has been selected by the most important worldwide association for the protection of the nature (World Wildlife Fund) as WWF affiliated Reserve.
This prestigious acknowledgement has come at the beginning of a year that promises to be very important for Forteto della Luja and for Loazzolo (Asti), the small village of the Comunità Montana Langa Astigiana where the Cellar is located. Moreover, WWF Piedmont informed that the traditional “Wildlife Reserve Day” scheduled on Sunday 20 May 2007 all over Italy, will take place in Loazzolo and in the newborn affiliated Reserve Forteto della Luja. For many years the efforts of the Scaglione family have been aimed at achieving and enhancing a quality wine-growing in full respect of the traditions and the great cultural and naturalistic patrimony that our country and some uncontaminated places in the old Piedmont still preserve.
The small, ancient and typical Forteto della Luja Cellar, the old steep vineyards, surrounded by dry stone low walls and by magnificent woods immersed in a unique landscape, rich in biodiversity, represent a remarkable example of the deep value of knowing, appreciating and preserving.
