A rich aroma that keeps the fragrance of the Moscato grapes, mixed with a slight scent of yeast and flowers. Lovely, sweet flavour harmoniously balanced with acidity and a moderate percentage of alcohol, brightened by delicate sparkles. Something different from Italy.

Wine Makers

Bera Moscato d'Asti DOCG. by Valter & Umberto Bera

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. 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 for 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 with great diligence, 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 prestigious national and international awards. Valter’s vineyard is located in Neviglie in the hills outside Alba and while difficult to find it was worth it.


Everything is done by hand. The vines are mature, over 40 years old, In the winery there is meticulous attention to detail. Nothing is left to chance. Valter is reknowned through the region for the quality and style of his wine. Luigi Veronelli, who was in charge of the estate during the second World War, and survived many obsatcles to continue his business left this legend: 'Those who learned the lesson that nothing is easy where vineyards are concerned, won...'.

In The Press

Press Reviews

"Semi-sparkling and delicious with a perfume of apple blossom and freshly crushed grapes. Medium sweetness. Chill before enjoying as a great low calorie alternative to dessert." Liam Campbell, Irish Independent.

"Sweet but far from cloying, this perfumed, spicy, tangerine scented offering comes with a light touch. It balances acidity in the form of a crisp backbone and trips across the palate as daintily as you can imagine. Perfect with blue cheese or anything very salty - even Tayto!" Tom Doorley, Irish Mail on Sunday

"Quintessential white peach, apricot, honey and lemon blossom notes. Very elegant and fresh with rich flavours and vibrant acidity." Kerin O’Keefe, Decanter Magazine

BERA MOSCATO D'ASTI DOCG Moscato Bianco by Valter & Umberto Bera COI: Italy Vintage: 2012 ABV: 5% , 10/05/2013
By UBERTILT
I just knew that this little gem would cause confusion and in my experience where there is confusion there is also opportunity. As I posed the question to my significantly better half if it was a sparkling wine or a dessert wine she played accurately into my subterfuge by replying "I dunno". "Well it's lucky I purchased more than one bottle" I quipped before uncorking another and releasing it's contents back into the wild. To an observer I imagine our sparkling/dessert wine debate was akin to watching a fictional Wimbledon Grand Slam mixed final between Roger Federer and Martina Navratilova. After hours of play we diplomatically agreed that our new found friend should be accurately described as a Sparkling Dessert wine moving forward. While I detected hints of peach and honey my better half picked up on floral and tropical fruit aromas. This really is an all-rounder which I hope to hoard in the hope of someday receiving a favourable weather forecast. Suited to both a well made Key Lime Pie and a well done BBQ sausage I've a feeling I'll be seeing more of this particular character before the Summer (Season) is out. Not to be confused with its *Insert appropriate swear word* cousin Asti Spumante, Moscato d’Asti is a much more refined offering, made with love and may be described as gently sparkling but never gassy. It's moderate alcohol content of 5% lends well to to the operation of light machinery like a kite or a BBQ Grill but certainly nothing heavier than a skateboard or pair of rollerblades. A fantastic build-up to any enjoyable evening.
