Colle Manora established in 1981 is a 100ha estate in Monferrato, Piemonte with 20ha of vines which form an amphitheater of vineyards flanked on both sides by woods. This perfect setting enhanced by the biodiversity of their land gives life to their classic wines. Mimosa is made from Sauvignon grapes, which were planted some 20 years ago when international varieties were brought to Piedmont.

Mimosa was in fact one of the first expressions of Sauvignon in Piemonte made by reputed winemaker Donato Lanati, and it became a favorite white Piemontese wine showing excellent adaptation to the soils of ancient marine origin, rich in limestone, sand and marl which make this wine sapid and mineral with delicate floral ‘mimosa’ nose and delicious tropical, peach and citrus notes on the palate even with a hint of herbs on the finish. Above all it is a dynamic, elegant wine to be enjoyed as an aperitif or that pairs well to appetizers, light meat dishes, and fish.

Born from the careful recovery of an ancient 19th century farmhouse and its lands, COLLEMANORA, proudly managed by the Schön family, dominates the smooth hills of Monferrato (Piemonte), in a natural amphitheatre of single-body vineyards, set among the picturesque villages of Quargnento and Fubine, now included in the Unesco Heritage.

In the hands of Giorgio Schön, entrepreneur and gentlemen driver, and Marina Orlandi Contucci, whose family has been linked to the wine culture for generations, the winery and its wines carry within the mall the values ​​of Made in Italy: Quality, Elegance, Passion.
