Boeri Wines - Piedmont, Italy

The Boeri wine estate was established around 1900 when the great-grandfather of the current owners, Alfonso Boeri, began growing vines on the slopes of Bricco Quaglia. In all these years, starting with great-grandfather Alfonso, grandfather Giovanni and father of the current owners, Alfonso, each generation passed onto the next one passion for winemaking: for the hard work it entails and for the immense satisfactions its brings.

In 1998 Giorgio and Roberto Boeri, the current owners, took in their hands the management of the estate. They decided to cultivate grapes of the highest quality and to produce and bottle outstanding wines. As the name for their wines they chose Alfonso Boeri, paying homage to the great-grandfather and father Alfonso. Their first wine was Barbera d’Asti Superiore Pörlapà whose grapes come from a vineyards that was first planted by grandfather Giovanni in 1936. Encouraged by the success of their first wine, Giorgio and Roberto began producing additional wines whose grapes come from the Bricco Quaglia vineyards. They also planted several new vineyards, focusing not only on the traditional Barbera, but also on Moscato, Chardonnay and even Nebbiolo – the grape variety used for making barolo and barbaresco.
