If you have never heard of Bovio it might be because much of the wine is sold in Italy, at the famous Bovio restaurant that is a must visit if you find yourself in Piemonte. Export markets are an afterthought. That means these wines are seriously underpriced.
Gianfranco Bovio began to look after his father Alessandro’s holdings in the 1970s, renovating the old cellars and dedicating himself with passion to the making of wines grown on the estate vineyards that stretch out over 6.5 hectares.
Now it is the turn of Alessandra and her husband Marco Boschiazzo to continue the family tradition, with the co-operation of winemaker Matteo Franchi, and Robert Tofan front of house.
The company philosophy is strongly embedded in tradition and terroir, from the scrupulous tending of the vineyards, through to the ageing of the wines in large oak casks.
