Bera Barbera D'Asti DOC
d' Asti DOC, Piedmont, Italy
The Bera family in Italy live just 400 mts outside the Barberesco zone in. With will and strength Valter has ignored this unlucky hand and developed a wonderful range of wines of which we have two. This red wine is big and full with lovely dark berried fruit and refreshing cool acidity.

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 label. With the passing of the winery to Valter and Alida, a new generation had joined the family: Umberto and Riccardo.
The underlying philosophy of this new generation of winemakers is to maintain the utmost respect for the tradition of the terroir and to every manufacturing practice. A great passion and desire to make high-quality wines drive all phases of the work from the cultivation and crushing of the grapes to the bottling. It is because of this hard work and dedication that the winery has received prestigious national and international awards. Valter’s vineyard is located in Neviglie in the hills outside Alba and while trying to find it on the first vineyard visit was a bit painstaking — it was also absolutely worth it.
Everything is done by hand at Bera. In both the vineyard and the winery, there is meticulous attention to detail. Nothing is left to chance. Valter is renowned through the region for the quality and style of his outstanding wine.
"It hasn’t taken Bera long to assert itself as one of the best-known names in Moscato and Asti. Valter is one of the most competent interpreters of the popular native Piedmont vine. Over the years we have come to expect a reassuringly consistent level of quality from Valter Bera’s wines that allows him to tackle a range of wine types, from Spumante Metodo Classico to Barbaresco."
Azienda Agricola Bera, the Bera family farm, is in Piedmont, in the Langhe area between Alba and Asti on the road from Barbaresco and Neive that climbs up towards Neviglie. 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. Today, the farm is spread over an area of 30 hectares, 23 of which are vineyards that also extend into the nearby towns
