Braida

Braida has been created in 1961 by Giacomo Bologna. He became one of the first to use French-oak casks to vinify his best grapes –raising the overall quality from a traditional table Barbera to a fine wine.
In 1982, Braida di Bologna Giacomo launched Bricco dell’ Uccellone, a “Super Barbera”.
By planting with care and then ageing the wines in small, French oak barrels in order to compensate for Barbera’s lack of tannins, Bologna was able to create deeply flavourful, complex wines out of a variety normally considered to be an acidic filler.
Now, the children, Raffaella and Giuseppe, run the wine estate. They have made Braida one of the most respected wineries in Piedmont.
