Cantine Stucky-Hügin Sagl

Ticino, Switzerland


Cantine Stucky-Hügin Sagl is a boutique winery. Its two cellars are the Cantina della Rocca and the Cantina del Portico. Almost all the vineyards are located in Sopraceneri. They are spacious and sandy soils. Most of the vineyards are steepy slopes with more than 100% inclination. Therefore, all plots are cultivated exclusively by hand: this increases the quality but decreases the quantity; one bottle per vine is produced at most. The boutique wines enjoy an excellent reputation.

The grapes are produced on steep slopes above Lake Maggiore. The slope guarantees a high quality of the grapes and requires a lot of manual work. Great importance is attached to sustainable production; in fact the use of pesticides is reduced to a minimum. The top wines are aged according to the maceration method in new French oak barriques, where the grapes mature for up to 18 months.

The pioneer

In the 80s Werner Stucky developed Ticino wines quality and recognition. In the past, Ticino wines were seen as mediocre recognition; more a daily food than a fine gastronomic element. Thanks to him, today this has changed.
