The history of Tenuta La Marchesa
The beginning of its history dates back to 1750: in the house of the Marquis Sauli, an ancient and powerful family of Genoese bankers, prepares the wedding of a daughter, but the family home, built in the late 1600s, does not live up to the aspirations of the new bride, or perhaps the young husband simply has many more ambitions .
The decision is quick, a fantastic villa is built in the center of the property: for the name, no problem, it is "La Marchesa”In honor of his young wife. The chapel dedicated to guardian angels, larger than the previous one to ensure the health of the peasants' soul, the limonaia to keep precious lemons during the winter… everything seems radiant and happy.
La French Revolution is coming, Napoleon victorious in Marengo perhaps he spends the night at the Marchesa, but his glory is also fleeting and the new Italy, after the Vienna congress, begins its industrial history: with the silk boom in Novi, "La Marchesa" becomes the country house of the most important family in the area.
The years pass and at the end of the 800th century i Ray D'Azeglio create a latifundium of 2000 hectares, the whole area of the Gavi.
We are in our day: with Giulini "La Marchesa" returns to its former glory with the same lands of 1750 (76 hectares, one of the largest companies in Gavi), the chapel and limonaia perfectly restored, the ancient house of the Sauli transformed into farmhouse with restaurant.
