|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.
