Cascina Sciulun is a typical historic farmhouse built in mid-nineteenth century. Since late 1800 our family owns and farms the land that surrounds the estate and today the winery produces fine and long-lasting wines.
Our guesthouse is a great starting point to discover the beauty that this area has to offer.
We are located in Monforte d’Alba in the Bussia hamlet, which is only an half an hour walk from Barolo and less than 1 hour from Castiglione Falletto and all the other picturesque villages are a short drive from the guesthouse.
Less than 15 kilometres from Cascina Sciulun, there is the town of Alba the capital of Langhe, also known as the city of “Cento Torri” hundred towers, because of its medieval history. Alba is a great place to shop not only for souvenirs but also for great wines and food and in fact in 2017 it was awarded the title of UNESCO Creative City for Gastronomy.
Langhe is such an incredible area but there is more! A little south, towards Liguria, there is a place called Alta Langa. There, the landscape changes, the rolling hills transform almost into an alpine landscape and woodlands is what you find there. The altitude is too high to plant vineyards but it is the perfect environment for the Queen of Alta Langa, the best hazelnut in the world, called “Tonda Gentile” a typical variety of this area.
Vast fields are used to farm cows, sheep and goats from which incredible cheeses are made, such as Robiola di Roccaverano, Tuma di Murazzano DOP and Tuma di Bossolasco.
A fun and environmentally friendly way to discover our beautiful rolling hills is doing trekking trails from one small village to the other or with e-bikes. We work closely with an e-bike renting company that operates in the Novello village, only a 10 minutes’ drive from our guesthouse. If you are interested in this service, all you need to do is letting us know and we will take care of the booking process. Here at the winery you will find a place to charge them in case of a long renting.
