"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."
