Company details

In a “green sparkling sea” of great hills where vines grown, Piero Bussi has a winery in one of the most beautiful villages in the area of Asti, bordering the Langhe.

When the First World War finished, Agostino Bussi, born in 1900, began to make wine himself (instead of selling his grapes to a trader like his father did), mainly with Barbera grapes and with a small parcel of Bonarda. At that time the farm’s plantings were about 1,5 hectares.

During the 1960s, when Germano Bussi took over the farm from his father, the domain expanded to 4 hectares. In 1968 there was a significant turning point: because of that year’s disastrous hail storm which destroyed a large part of the harvest, they began to make Moscato wine. The production was very demanding and resource-intensive because of the ancient equipment (after pressing the grapes by hand and the clarification, the must was filtered with sacks called “Dutch sacks”, a very slow and laborious process). After some experimenting eventually good results were achieved and gradually the vineyards were extended. Piero Bussi increasingly expanded the farm’s plantings and now has 11 hectares of vineyards.

The proud family tradition of wine-making has always underpinned the quality of our products, from vineyard to cellar. In 2012 Piero’s son, Federico Bussi, joined the winery: the family tradition of making honest, local quality wine continues.
