Located in Piemonte’s natural beauty, is the BRAIDA estate, widely known for its crisp and refreshing white wines and complex reds. The founder Giacomo Bologna had a dream which was to raise the level of quality of the Barbera grape above the normal standards. He feverishly imposed the strictest of selection during the harvest and created single vineyard denomination for his vines as well as employing the use of barriques for the aging of his beloved Barbera. Giacomo Bologna is a legend and will always be remembered as the father of great Barbera. Son Beppe and daughter Raffaella, winemakers, continue to apply the same principles in the production of their wines with the resulting success recognized worldwide behind the labels of Bricco dell Uccellone, Montebruna, Bricco della Bigotta, Ai Suma, etc.

The Winery "Braida di Giacomo Bologna" is located in the municipality of Rocchetta Tànaro (Asti) in the Italian region Piedmont, It was founded by Guiseppe Bologna and is named after its nickname "Braida". In the early 1970s, it was taken over by his son Giacomo Bologna (+1990). The vineyards are planted with the varieties Barbera, Brachetto, Chardonnay, Dolcetto, Pinot Nero, Riesling Renano (Rheinriesling) and others. Today, the exquisite Californian-style estate is run by his widow Anna and his children Guiseppe "Bepe" and Raffaela. During a stay in California in the 1970s, Giacomo Bologna was founded by the famous oenologist André Tchelistcheff (1901-1994) with the Barrique and became a fan of French-style wines. He became a pioneer of Italian viticulture and created a new style of long-lived, highly concentrated red wines.

The first wine matured in Barrique was the red wine created at the beginning of the 1980s Barbera d'Asti (then DOC, now DOCG) called "Bricco del'Uccellone" from very old Barbera vines, aged for 12 months in oak barrels. He owes his name to an old lady who once lived in the adjoining house of the estate and was always dressed in black. It was nicknamed "l'uselun" ("the big bird"). It then followed the also made Barbera and oak matured "Bricco della Bigottà" (15 months) and only produced in good years "Ai Suma" (Spätlese). All of these wines still age up to 12 months in the bottle before being marketed. Two cuvées also aged in barrique are "Il Baciale" (Barbera and Pinot Nero) and "Il Fiore" from Chardonnay and Riesling, bought from the 1988 "Fiori Serra" vineyard. The classic style Barbera "La Monella" has been around since 1961. The DOCG wine will also be on sale Brachetto d'Acqui produced.
