Saturday Oct 11 After another huge breakfast spread we drove via Asti to the Cascina Castlet winery in the foothills of Costigliole d'Asti. The 25 hectare property is owned by Maria Borio who inherited the winery from her father in 1970. They grow Barbera, moscato and uvalino grapes. We toured the wine making areas including the vintage cellar where old wines are kept and in the original cellar we tasted 5 red wines and one moscato with the wine maker.

But it's late and the room is comfortable, so I stay.
