Braida is the story of wines made from Barbera grapes - from the lightest and most carefree expressions to the deepest and most sensual. 1961 was the date of the first harvest of the lively Barbera del Monferrato, “La Monella”, which Giacomo Bologna decided to bottle. In 1969 Giacomo presented his wine at the Douja d’Or National Wine Competition in Asti, winning the gold medal, which allowed him to participate free of charge in the wine fairs of Genoa, Turin and Milan, where he shared his thoughts on Barbera with other winemakers. Giacomo Bologna left the winery to his children - Giuseppe and Raffaella Bologna. The estate is the product of the enthusiasm, passion and entrepreneurial courage of a bona fide Rocchettese, Giacomo Bologna.
The Braida properties are located between the Monferrato Astigiano and Langhe districts. The heart of the activity is represented by the vineyards of Rocchetta Tanaro, with their medium consistency soils featuring sand and clay in almost equal parts. Home to the valuable crus of Bricco dell’Uccellone, Bricco della Bigotta and Montebruna.
