Azienda Agricola Bera, the Bera family farm, is in Piedmont, in the Langhe area between Alba and Asti on the road from Barbaresco and Neive that climbs up towards Neviglie. Here, countryside life is tied to a tradition that knows no boundaries, and does not even spare the forest spaces where the white truffle of Alba born. The winemaking tradition goes back centuries in the Bera family. But only at the end of the ‘70s did they start producing wines to bottle and sell with their own label. Today, the farm is spread over an area of 30 hectares, 23 of which are vineyards that also extend into the nearby towns. From the time of Luigi Veronelli’s description to the present, some things have changed: the vineyards and the varieties of the wines have grown, and the winery has been modernized. Also, with the passing of the winery to Valter and Alida, a new generation has joined the family azienda: Umberto and Riccardo.
The basic philosophy is always to maintain utmost respect to the tradition of the territory and to every manufacturing practice. With a great passion and a great desire to make high quality wines, all phases of the work are followed directly, from the cultivation and crushing of the grapes, to the bottling. It is because of this hard work and passion that the winery has received important national and international awards. The family produces Moscato for the production of Asti and Moscato d’Asti, and Nebbiolo to make Barbaresco, Nebbiolo Langhe and the amazing Sassisto. But Valter and his two sons also look ahead. So while they continue to produce Dolcetto and Barbera to stay true to their territorial wines, they also produce Chardonnay and Pinot Nero for their unique and intriguing Alta Langa Bera Brut metodo classico.
