DOCG area (also Cortese di Gavi) for white wine in the Italian region of Piedmont. The zone covers 1,570 hectares of vineyards in the entirety of the municipalities of Bosio, Carrosio, Gavi, Parodi Ligure, San Cristoforo and Tassarolo, as well as parts of Capriata d'Orba, Francavilla Bisio, Novi Ligure, Pasturana and Serravalle Scrivia in the province of Alessandria. Additional possible geographical indications are Costa Santo Stefano and Capanne di Marcarolo (Bosio), Monterotondo, Pratolungo and Rovereto (Gavi), and Cadepiaggio and Tramontana (Parodi Ligure). If the grapes come from classified vineyards, Vigna can be indicated (only for still wine) followed by the vineyard name.

Sigi Hiss

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
