Giacomo Bologna - known as 'Braida' ‚– inherited his love of barbera from his wheelwright father's small plot of the grape in the town of Rocchetta Tanaro in Piedmont. He determined he would use it to create wines as subtle and complex as the best pinot noir and nebbiolo and succeeded. Along the way, the world stood up and took notice and now Braida wines such as the Bricco dell'Uccellone and Ai Suma are renowned for their elegance and suitability for ageing.
The estate, owned by the Bologna family since 1961, is run today by Anna Martinengo and by Giacomo's children, Giuseppe and Raffaella Bologna. It stands on an overall area of 70 hectares of which 40 are vineyard and 30 occupied by meadows, woodland and sown crops. The estate agronomist is Federico Curtaz and the enologist Giuseppe Bologna.
