The estate of La Scolca is situated in Gavi, in the heart of the Val Lemme, in the "tip" of the south-east of Piedmont, which is the province of Alexandria, where the Piedmontese accent mixes and mingles with the accents of Liguria and Lombardy. It’s the cradle of the Cortese grape, which is the most famous white wine from Piedmont. The Company was acquired by the present owner's great-grandfather, Giorgio Soldati, today assisted by his daughter Chiara. The name of the winery comes from a slang word of the place: Sfurca, which means "look ahead," and in this look away, look forward to, is the philosophy that inspires the Company: Five generations, soon will be six, who have always looked away, trying always to be the first. Giorgio Soldati has proved very skilled in the basement and has expanded greatly the range of wines, always and only processing the Cortese. The vineyard of Giorgio and Chiara covers 40 acres of property in addition to another 20 acres rented and also one among the various plots in the town of Rovereto, which borrowing the French classification of the vineyards, might be called the "grand cru "of Cortese.
