Agriturismo Azienda Agricola Vitivinicola La Costa is located in Lombardy.

La Costa was founded in 1992 when Giordano Crippa, born and raised in Perego Brianza, decided to realize his vision for the local area by purchasing Cascina Scarpata (the old farmhouse) and the surrounding land. Both had been abandoned for decades, and as a result had deteriorated over time.

The location is enchanting, along the terraced ridge of a morainic theatre, which is well exposed in the Wildlife Reserve of Montevecchia and Valle del Curone. Hard work brought the farmhouse back to life and stopped the brambles from spreading any further, allowing space for the vineyard and historic terraces.

The harvest of 2000 marked the creation of the first wines. Today la Costa is a much bigger project that involves the whole family, and many more.
