'Mainìn' is a dialect form of the name Marina; Marina Ghibellini is one of the owners of the estate. About 4,000 cases of this bottling is produced per year.

The Domain: Located in Monterotondo, which is part of the Municipality of Gavi (Piedmont). The vineyard stretches over an area of around 20 hectares, in a beautiful context of rolling hills between the southern part of the Po River Valley and the Ligurian Apennines. Guyot pruning system, high density planting.

La Ghibellina was founded in 2000 by Alberto and Marina Ghibellini and they specialize in the production of high quality wines. The name of the vineyard, “La Ghibellina”, derives from the surname of the family. The soil conditions, the ideal exposure to sunlight, and the sea breeze that blows from the nearby Mediterranean coast create the ideal conditions for the cultivation of vines. There are 7ha under vine that are farmed organically. The vineyards are mostly on a significant slope with red clay that is filled with white rocks.
