SELIO29, The art of ceramics meets the great wines of Italy

A Story of Art, Wine, and Tradition from Piedmont’s Canavese Region

Art, craftsmanship, and oenological tradition all wrapped up in a single product, exemplifying the excellence of a marvelous region. SELIO29 is all of this and more: precious handcrafted bottles made from Castellamonte ceramic filled with Erbaluce di Caluso, the most representative wine of the Canavese region.

Canavese is a geographical region located in the northwest of Piedmont, just a stone’s throw from the cities of Turin and Milan. Its mineral-rich terrain makes it an ideal place for cultivating grapes. One of the most well-known local wines is the Erbaluce di Caluso, a DOCG white wine which, according to regulations, can only be produced in the provinces of Turin, Biella, and Vercelli, from native grapes of the Erbaluce varietal.

Another deeply-rooted practice within the Canavese region is the art of sculpting ceramics. The area’s plateaus and hills are rich in refractory clays used to create this material.

The first populations of the Canavese region began working with the clay, leaving an indelible mark on the local history and tradition.

It’s on this very tradition that the creation of SELIO29’s artisan bottles is based. Knowledge of this ceramic art has been passed down from father to son in the Savio family, which for generations has been producing handcrafted stoves, a leader among Castellamonte’s potters from the early 1800s to the present day.

With the objective of giving ceramics a new look, Ceramiche Savio has created the SELIO29 bottles, an important historical legacy to be carried into the future.

Two types of “porcelain” bottles, characterised by two different drawings reproduced in “relief”, are currently in production:

• Filari [rows of grape vines] for bottles of Passito di Erbaluce from the Castello d’Azeglio winery

• Tralcio [grape vines] for the bottles of Distillato di Passito di Erbaluce from the Revel Chion di Chiaverano distillery.

For SELIO 29, the uniqueness of these handcrafted bottles is a distinctive trait and a source of pride, the true added value of this entirely artisan Made in Italy product which makes an extraordinary gift and collector’s item for those who appreciate beautiful and long-lasting objects.
