The groundbreaking auction is the first-ever exhibition of luxury real estate to gavel live in Europe at Sotheby’s since its inception in 1744, setting a new benchmark for the industry.

The property was meticulously renovated over the past 15 years with the best consultants the region has to offer to preserve its historic charm.

“In keeping with Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions’ legacy in sharing unique and luxurious estates, we are proud to offer bidders a chance to own Azienda Agricola Montefiorito,” said Ben Podesta, Director of Business Development of Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions. “Complete with various elements of a truly elevated lifestyle, the next owner of this wonderful Italian destination will acquire not only a wonderful slice of Italian real estate but also a history spanning more than 340 years.

The main villa of Azienda Agricola Montefiorito features a ground-floor living room with a fireplace, a dining room, and a kitchen. The upper floor encompasses three bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and a laundry room. The exterior has a classic Italian design with beautiful shutters and red roof tiles. Additional buildings on the property include a wine-tasting area, a cellar, and two independent apartments.

Over four hectares of the estate are organic vineyards of Nebbiolo, Grignolino, Arneis, and Sauvignon Blanc grapes that can produce up to 40,000 bottles of authentic wine.

“This Piedmont gem will offer its next owner a variety of potential uses, including an excellent investment for a family home or event venue. Azienda Agricola Montefiorito carefully blends old-world Italian heritage with modernized living, offering a fusion of experiences that culminate in a memorable destination for calling home, visiting, and entertaining,” said Lodovico Pignatti Morano, Owner and Managing Partner of Italy Sotheby’s International Realty. “Although it is a country house, you’re only an hour away from Milan and Turin, allowing you to experience the peace of rural life without being far from the excitement of the big city. ”

The region has many offerings including exploring the local vineyards to sample the famous Asti Spumante and Moscato d’Asti and visiting the impressive Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta, which dates back to the 5th or 6th century.
