Our vines,
our wine

Cantina alla Maggia is located in the heart of the vineyards. A place that combines wine production and wine tasting, just a few metres from Ascona and Lake Maggiore.

An estate unlike any other in the Maggia Delta

Cantina alla Maggia has been producing wine in the heart of Ascona since 1946. Today we are a recognised winery and our wines are known throughout Switzerland for their high quality.

Our oenologist Ettore Biraghi, together with his team, takes care of all the operations on the estate. From the care of the vines to the harvest, from vinification to bottling, everything is done locally and with great passion.

  • Agriculturalists since 1930, winemakers since 1946

The character of Ticino, beyond grappa

The distillates embody both our roots and our love of experimentation. Amazing things are created from our own raw materials: a whisky aged for over 10 years from our own barley, and a gin refined with the yuzu fruit, which we were the first to grow successfully in Ticino.

We are agriculturalists by passion

In Ascona and on the Magadino plain, we cultivate our fields with care. Thanks to trustworthy partners in Ticino, our raw materials are used to produce local, sustainable and high-quality food - from rice, durum wheat, soft wheat, maize (red, "Millo Corvo", white) to two-row barley.

A future rich in history
