CASAFRANCOLI is the flagship store for Torraccia del Piantavigna wines and the grappas and other Italian spirits of Distillerie Francoli.
The store couldn’t be easier to access from the Romagnano-Ghemme exit of the A26 Voltri-Sempione motorway. Set in the rural countryside of the Novara Hills on the road leading north-west from Novara into the Valsesia, it’s right on the way to Lake Orta and Lake Maggiore. For more than twenty years, the store has been a key landmark in the area, where people come to taste and buy our grappas, distillates, liqueurs and quality wines. The store carries the full range of all our wines including all the available vintages of Ghemme and Gattinara in standard bottle, magnum and Jeroboam.
The store’s concept, style and design reflect the quality service we offer our customers and which underlies the Ghemme trade-mark. The store is spacious and pleasant with well informed friendly staff who can assist you. To help you choose which wines to buy, many of the wines are availabe for tasting at the counter.
The store is the point-of-sale for the Torraccia del Piantavigna wines and the distillates made by Francoli, as well as food products made locally. In fact, you can also buy bottles in elegant gift packages and in baskets containing all kinds of delicious local produce for special occasions.

This is a place where you can get to know our wines, by tasting and comparing them. The wine bar is located in Ghemme in the northern wing of Casafrancoli. Built in stone and wood, it is the ideal place for indulging in pleasures both of the palate and of learning.
In the area below the store, we can organize guided wine-tastings, combined with tastings of local food products, for up to 100 guests. This kind of event is especially popular with groups visiting the area to shop in the many designer retail outlets, and works well as a first port of call for groups visiting the Valsesia or the northern Italian lakes.
The staff of CASAFRANCOLI, who are friendly people with expert knowledge of our products, will be happy to help if you wish to plan a tailor-made event to suit your requirements.
We manage a centre that collects valuable texts and ample other literature on the world of distillates and alcoholic beverages in general, examined in their cultural, productive and historical aspects, as well as from the marketing and communication point of view. It is an international library and is located in Ghemme – at Casafrancoli – home to great wines and aquavitae. We thus present an ambitious educational plan to demonstrate that ‘alcohol’ is, first and foremost, an intermediary between tradition and innovation. An exquisite product of the human intellect.
Then winery is situated directly behind Casafrancoli. Please inform us in advance if you wish to visit our beautiful atmospheric wine-cellars. We can arrange a range of different options from a simple visit to a full tasting, a light snack of local specialities, a vist to the vineyards or a master-class with our enologist.
