Geschiedenis In 1964, Alibrando Dei, Maria Caterina's grandfather, bought the first part of the entire estate : Bossona. This vineyard is gorgeous for exposition and kind of soil, a sort of amphitheater always where the wind blows with a certain constancy. Starting from 1991 Maria Caterina quitted her career of singer and actress to dedicate her time to her land and her vineyards.
Filosofie The main aims of the Dei are to produce wines whose characteristics represent its terroir and to promote the high quality of Vino Nobile and the original grape varieties of the region which give their wines the very distinct characteristics.

The altitude is about 300 metres above sea level. The estate is divided into 4 vineyards: Bossona, Martiena, La Ciarliana and La Piaggia perfect for the production of Vino Nobile thanks to the quality of their soil and the kind of their exposition. The soil of the vineyards where the Nobile grapes grow has different characteristics: in Martiena is medium-textured, while in Bossona it is tufaceous, slimy and quite barren. In the last one we produce our most important cru.
