"Valter Bera’s family have been growing grapes in the village of Neviglie for over a century, selling grapes to other firms for many years. Valter joined the winery in 1979 after graduating from the Enological School of Alba and began bottling Moscato, Brachetto, Barbera, and Nebbiolo under the Bera name.
Neviglie is a small village of 400 people located just a few kilometers south of Barbaresco and is home to the Bera family. The family owns and farms 56 acres in Neviglie as well as vineyards in the nearby Asti and Barbaresco areas to produce a broad range of wines.
Brachetto has been cultivated in Piedmont since Roman times. The first commercial release of a sparkling and sweet Brachetto came about in the 1970s and is especially popular around the spa town of Acqui Terme. Bera’s Brachetto is made in the frizzante style with gentle sweetness by using the Martinotti method." - Winery Notes
Szigeti Blanc de Blancs 2012 Tasting Notes
"A classic example of Blanc de Blanc, with an Austrian flair. Bright gold with a green tinge and racy mousse. Fresh creamy apple and peach aromas, touch of pineapple and freshly sliced mango. Dry, fresh vibrant structure of crunchy apple over juicy peach and more mango, very refined acidity over balanced fruit intensity and a lean, crisp apple finish, very elegant." - Winery Notes
