Of land, wine and family

It was 1967 when Egidio Bosio and his wife Angela decided to devote themselves to wine.

Egidio is a visionary, hard-working farmer who sensed the potential of his hills when Piedmontese wine was still in its infancy. He began cultivating and winemaking the family's small plots of land in Val Bera, a side valley in the town of Santo Stefano Belbo, famous for being the birthplace of writer Cesare Pavese.

The winery is located close to Valdivilla, in the productive heart of the Muscato Hills, an area of dizzying scenic beauty and rows as far as the eye can see, where the cultivation of vines requires immense manual effort because of the prohibitive slopes.

After a lifetime spent among the vineyards, Egidio handed over to his son Valter a small vineyard heritage and boundless passion for the land.

The first major turning point, occurred in the 1980s when Valter expanded the vineyard property on the hills of Castiglione Tinella, Mango, Costigliole d'Asti and Castagnole delle Lanze. At the same time, he created long lasting trustworthy relationships with dozens of vintners from Langhe, Roero and Monferrato regions who began to grow grapes on behalf of the Bosio family according to Vater’s direction that was focused on quality and manual processing.

In the meantime, the winery went through an important modernization, equipping itself with the best winemaking and sparkling wine technologies so that it could follow all of the grapes process first hand, from conferring, bottling to final packaging.

Working assiduously alongside Valter Bosio is his wife Rosella, a companion in life and adventures, a point of reference for the winery, who has always been actively involved in administration and logistics.

In recent years, Valter's son Luca Bosio, an oenology graduate, also joined the company. The new face of the winery together with his wife Valentina, Luca is actively involved in overseeing winery operations and wine marketing, with a particular focus on foreign markets.

Today the Bosio family's wines represent the Piedmont of wine. A potential of more than 700 hectares from the most vocated hills of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato. An unparalleled winemaking heritage that includes all the major appellations in the region and is vinified on the basis of Egidio's teachings: selection of the best grapes and plots; impeccable quality control along the entire supply chain; simple, traditional processes that leave room for the true expression of the land, which he loved and cultivated all his life.
