Boeri

Costigliole d'Asti, Italy

In the charming hamlet of Bionzo, Costigliole d’Asti, the Boeri estate has been producing wine since 1890. The vineyards extend over the Bricco Quaglia hill, which offers the perfect terroir for cultivating grapes of the highest quality. Thanks to the favorable terroir and to winemakers’ commitment to producing natural and carefully crafted wines, Boeri estate has been acclaimed as one of the most accomplished producers of barbera in Piemonte.

To produce wines of the highest quality, it is necessary to give the utmost care to the vineyard and to have the maximum respect for the land, because good wine is made in the vineyard. These are the phrases that are often repeated when people speak about Boeri wines. All the work in the vineyard is done manually and the entire family participates in all the daily activities and tasks. Pesticides are used rarely, only to provide for coverage in case a localized problem emerges. On the rare occasions when a fertilizers is called for, Boeri use exclusively organic and natural fertilizers. Finally, no irrigation is performed on the estate: Boeri leave it up to nature to decide how much water the vines need. The fact that Boeri intervene so rarely and carefully in the vineyard shows their commitment to “natural” winemaking: one that allows the seasons, the terroir and the weather to determine the special and distinctive flavors of each wine each year.
Starting with the first production of 4000 bottles in 2001, the estate has been growing continuously, especially due to the constant enthusiasm for Boeri wines in Italy and abroad. In 2001 Boeri wines acquired their first European clients, in 2005 entered the Asian market, and in 2006 the United States. Today Boeri wines are exported with success in 30 countries of Europe, Asia and North America, and the company continuously seeks to presents its wines in new markets.
