The winery "Il Sogno" (Engl. The Dream) is located in the municipality of Mombaruzzo (province of Asti) in the Italian region of Piedmont. It was founded in 2015 by Rudolf Längauer. Vincenzo Muni is the oenologist. Two junior suites with pool are also rented out. The wine cellar is partly underground and the building constructed on top of it was built according to the greatest possible ecological principles with 50 cm vertically perforated brickwork, wooden aluminium windows with thermal glazing and the greatest possible insulation in the roof area. The electricity is supplied by a photovoltaic system, the heating by geothermal energy and the water supply partly from the local water network, service water from a rainwater cistern and from our own well.
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
