The Bergaglio family  worked as share croppers in Gavi until 1975 when the estate was founded, starting with two hectares of vines.

Located, on the hills of Liguria and a few kilometres from Gavi, La Chiara estate currently owns 25 hectares.

The vines exposure, soil diversity and the microclimate generate a complex and refined Gavi di Gavi wine made exclusively from Cortese grapes. Severe pruning and a constant thinning out allow lower yields. The harvest is manual. The winery boasts a modern cellar with steel thermo-conditioned vats, pneumatic presses, layer, vacuum, siliceous earth filters, and sterile bottling line. The new designed wine cellar is attesting years of hard work and commitments.

These truly complex and remarkable Gavi di Gavi wines are in the tradition of Piedmonte’s finest expression of Cortese produced wines.

    The Cortese grape finds its finest expression in the Gavi di Gavi appellation. Its moderate acidity, although perfect crispness makes it a favourite amongst dry white wine lovers.

    Eticheta Nera is the produce of the  best Cortese grapes of La Chiara's vineyard which would refine on lees for four months. It brings the Gavi di Gavi to a new level.

    The freshness is immense, definitely a Gavi di Gavi with a robust structure, intense flavour and minerality.
