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 "Braida di Giacomo Bologna" winery is located in the municipality of Rocchetta Tànaro (Province of Asti) in the Italian region Piedmont, It was founded by Guiseppe Bologna and is named after its nickname "Braida". It was taken over by his son Giacomo Bologna (+1990) in the early 1970s. The vineyards are planted with the varieties Barbera, Brachetto, Chardonnay, Dolcetto, Pinot Nero, Riesling Renano (Rheinriesling) and others. Today, the exquisite estate in California style 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 faced 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 to be aged in barrels was the red wine created in the early 1980s Barbera d'Asti (then DOC, now DOCG) called "Bricco del'Uccellone" from very old Barbera vines, which matures in oak barrels for 12 months. It owes its name to an old lady who once lived in the manor's annex and was always dressed in black. It had the nickname “l'uselun” (German for “the big bird”). This was followed by the “Bricco della Bigottà” (15 months), also made from Barbera and matured in oak barrels, and “Ai Suma” (late harvest) produced only in good years. All of these wines mature in the bottle for up to 12 months before they are marketed. Two cuvées also developed in barrels are "Il Baciale" from the varieties Barbera and Pinot Nero and the "Il Fiore" from the varieties Chardonnay and Riesling, which was bought in 1988 from the vineyard "Fiori Serra". The classic style Barbera “La Monella” has been around since 1961. DOCG wine is also available Brachetto d'Acqui produced.
