Estate

The historical underground wine cellars of Coppo are a UNESCO World Heritage site. They are part of the network of underground cathedrals, a temple of wine dedicated to its history and the hard work of their history. Built beginning in the late 18th century, initially intended as small cellars to conserve wine, they were expanded from 1800-1900 to what they are today. The historical wine cellars of Coppo extend under the hill of Canelli for a total of 5 thousand square meters (16,400 ft) and a depth that reaches 40 meters (130 ft).
