Terre Antiche La Giustiniana found its roots a long time ago and there is evidence that 900ac the Benedettine monks started to make wine in this region. In 1625, one member of the Giustiniani family, commander in chief of the Genoa Army, successfully defended the rock of Gavi from a French siege and to celebrate this victory, he decided to build the Villa known as Giustiniana that is still nowadays overlooking these Cortese vineyards.
