The Abbey became a center of politics, religion and culture. The name of the winery comes precisely from the ancient Benedictine monastery dedicated to St. Gaudenzio, built on the foundations of a Roman temple dating back to the ninth century. Inside the abbey you can see the most ancient bas-reliefs of southern Piedmont depicting mythological animals and representations of the first crops of Muscat.
