Monferrato is part of the Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont UNESCO site: that is for many reasons. One of them, maybe the most unknown and peculiar, involves a stone!
The Pietra da Cantoni stone is a unique material that exists only in Monferrato. Local farmers used the stone for centuries to build wine cellars, cascinot, farmhouses and infernot. The infernot are unique underground wine cellars part of the UNESCO site.
In this Tour we want to retrace the steps of the Pietra da Cantoni in the daily use of the local culture.
