In a “green sparkling sea” of great hills where wines grown, Piero Bussi has set his winery, in one of the most beautiful village in the area of Asti, bordering the Langhe.
When the First World War finished, Agostino Bussi, born 1900, began to make wine himself with Barbera grape and a little of Bonarda one, instead of selling the grape to trader like his father did. At that time the farm was composed by about 1,5 hectares. But in the 60s, when Germano Bussi took over the far from his father, the hectares become 4. In 1968 there was the turning point: because of that year disastrous hail, they began to make Moscato wine. The production was very demanding and tiring because of the ancient equipment (after the press by hand and the clarification, the must was filtered with sacks called “Dutch sacks”, the process was very slow and laborious). Finally good results arrived and the will to buy other vineyard grew. Piero Bussi became gradually part of the farm that counts now 11 hectares of vineyards. That rely on the quality of their products, in vineyard before and in the cellar then.
Since 2012 with Federico Bussi the story goes on.
