The Piedmont region's La Chiara tells the tale of a family and their vines in the countryside near the town of Gavi.
The Bergaglio family has been making this outstanding white wine in Piedmont for three generations, and they were instrumental in its creation and success thanks to their long-standing farming traditions.
Everything started with the remarkable vision and passion of Ferdinando Bergaglio and his son Roberto, who understood the potential of the area for producing wine. After spending his whole life working for a storied local firm, Ferdinando chose to embark on a new adventure in 1976 by launching a family business, La Chiara, with the help of his newlywed son Roberto and daughter-in-law Silvana.
The enterprise now covers a sizable territory, all of it in the municipality of Gavi, with 28 hectares of vineyards that are proudly, passionately, and traditionally farmed.
La Chiara has expanded the variety of products it offers to clients throughout the years by diversifying its product lineup.
The company's crown jewel and most popularly exported wines are the "Gavi DOCG del Comune di Gavi" wines.
Today, the company serves both domestic and foreign markets; some of the nations where La Chiara wines are popular include Japan, the United States, and Russia.
Additionally, the business makes Passito, Grappa, red wines from the Monferrato region, and sparkling wines.
Owner: The Bergaglios family
Varietals planted: Cortese di Gavi, Chardonnay, Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Dolcetto
