The Bagnod Family
The history of the Bagnod family starts with Gino and Clelia Bagnod when in 1946 they descended from the Ayas Valley to the farmsteads of the Canavese area with their animals to winter during the cold months. From the union of values and tradition and much dedication, the Bagnod farm was born, still operating today in the production of cheeses, wines, cured meats, rice and oil. The Bagnod family is pleased to host you in its facilities to let you experience and fully taste true emotions.
THE HISTORY OF CELLAGRANDE
Among the rolling Canavese hills, planted with vineyards facing Lake Viverone, stands Cella Grande. An ancient Benedictine monastery, whose now deconsecrated church includes a stone bell tower and a chapel of Romanesque origin, built between the 11th and 12th centuries.
Here the monks who inhabited it used to de dicate viticulture and divine production from an ancient and native variety of white grape called “Albalux” still cultivated after centuries under the name Erbaluce.
In 2017 Roberto Bagnod acquired the structure and after a major conservative renovation work brought it to its original splendor of the time.
