Piedmont, IT

The vineyard has been the heart of the philosophy at Bera since the first generation began tending the rolling hills of Neviglie just south of Barbaresco township in the 50’s. Now the estate owns just over 30 hectares of prime growing land around the communes of Neviglie, Neive and Barbaresco, with the incredible new addition of perhaps the most revered vineyard in all of Barbaresco; Rabaja. Whilst the estate’s flagship has always been their delicately fragrant and extremely energetic Moscato, today the younger generation – Riccardo and Umberto – look towards their future as custodians of some of Piedmont’s greatest areas for the production of very fine Nebbiolo. 

In the winery the production remains simple, honest and traditionalist Piemontese; long macerations, large neutral oak and minimal intervention, with the aim of expressing the earth and the air of the Langhe in every one of the wines produced here. Production remains consistent at around 10,000 cases per year, with the majority being Moscato d’Asti whilst the red wines are produced from single botti, each holding around one hectare’s worth of juice per wine per vintage Long macerations, large neutral oak and minimal intervention, with the aim of expressing the earth and the air of the Langhe in every one of the wines produced here.
