Piedmont, Col San Martino

Bera is a family run winery which in the early 1980’s went from the grape growing activity to its own wine production with the help of the owner’s son Valter Bera, a graduate from the Oenological School of Alba. The farm spans over about 30 hectares with 20 hectares under vine, of which 12 are Moscato.

The village Neviglie is in the Langhe area in Piedmont, on the right side of the river Tanaro, between Alba and Asti, surrounded by the villages of Barbaresco, Neive, Mango and Treiso.

The vineyards are planted on a hill with soft slopes on the left of the road from Neive to Neviglie, a windy spot due to the conformation of the hills and the altitude varying from 320 to 380 metres above sea level facing south-southwest. The ground is clayey, tuffaceous and rich in limestone.

The Bera family directly oversees all phases of production, from the cultivation of the grapes to bottling. The wine cellar was built in the early 80's and gradually enlarged and modernized to facilitate vinification, storage, bottling and selling. The farm grows mainly Moscato grapes and produce Moscato d'Asti and Asti Spumante, which are very appealing drinks to both wine connoisseurs and amateurs.

“Among the best small-scale producers of Asti Spumante and Moscato d’Asti.” – Vino Italiano buying guide, 2008

“Serious skill and reliability in a sector as overcrowded and consistency-attentive as wine are excellent credentials and a guarantee for the consumer.” -  Gambero Rosso 2010
