Named after Nadia's mother Maria Teresa, who still works the vines full-time along with Nadia's father Ottavio (for whom the Grignolino bottling is now named!). Maria Teresa Verrua's middle name and artistically rendered visage with her signature sunglasses and sunhat grace the label of bottling.e grapes are hand harvested and then destemmed with berries kept whole and gently pressed without breaking the skins, to release just enough juice to kick off fermentation in vat. Vinified in stainless steel and aged on the lees for a few months before bottling.

Nadia Verrua, la padronina of Cascina 'Tavijn, works in a long forgotten area in the Asti province of Piemonte. Fortunately it is a region blessed with unique varieties brimming with personality. At the helm of the estate for well over a decade, Nadia is still aided by her parents Ottavio and Teresa. In her early years, she produced wines under the region's DOC and DOCG labels, but has progressively abandoned these designations to free herself of their limitations. Her three historic wines still remain each year, albeit with new identities. The Grignolino has now been dubbed "Ottavio" after her father, the Ruché is called "Teresa" after her mother and "La Bandita" is the estate's Barbera. It's also self referential to Nadia, who is depicted on the label wearing a Zorro mask.
