Vignaioli da 4 Generazioni
In a sea of fantastic wine-growing hills, between Langhe & Monferrato, in the heart of the UNESCO heritage area, is located the Bussi Piero's Winery.
12 hectares of vineyards - Winemakers from 4 generations
After WW1, Agostino Bussi abandons the custom of selling grapes to retailers and started making a small quantity of wine from the 1.5 hectares of land of Barbera & Nebbiolo grapes. In the 60st he hectares rised to 4 and his son Germano decided to vinify Moscato d'Asti which, being sparkling and sweet, was a very difficult wine to make for that time. But the results didn't wait to come and with his son Piero - the current owner with the Federico, 4th generation - the hectares rise to 12, never forgetting the focus on quality and naturalness of their products, in the vineyard first and then in cellar.
GENTE DI CALOSSO
Driven by his passion for history and the desire to discover his origins, in 2000 Piero Bussi published the historical book "Gente di Calosso".
"To tell you the truth, when I went to school, I was not very good in any subject, but history fascinated me, especially that of ordinary people, for example, if I found an ancient coin in a vineyard, I was not interested in its value, almost always insignificant, but I liked, through the era in which it was coined, to imagine who had lost it, the anger and then the resignation experienced in having lost it.
I had always been fascinated by the stories of the old people of my village, especially those handed down by my grandfather and my grandmother. The years have passed and the passion has grown to make me want to deepen the roots of my roots. "
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Valentina, New York
We had a great visit! Federico gave us a tour of the grounds and vineyards, explained the region and the production of wines and we enjoyed a thorough tasting of nine different wines. We, of course, purchased some wine to take home with us. Would highly recommend!
The tour was very interesting, Federico shared his knowledge and story of his family's wine making history. Very tasty wines (Moscato d'Asti DOCG is one of the best wines i've ever had!), very good value, definitely recommend it!
Abbiamo assaggiato oltre 10 vini insieme, potendo cosi capire molto più di ciò che era dentro i nostri calici. Sapientemente accompagnati da Federico che ha saputo evidenziare le peculiarità dei prodotti accompagnando i vini ad un tagliere ed uve moscato. Ne siamo usciti tutti con acquisti e la cantina ha acquisito nuovi clienti; capaci, preparati e con ottimi prodotti. Bravi!
The experience was great. We really enjoyed Federico's knowledge and hospitality. We got great explanation about the area and the winery and got to taste some really nice wines. He also recommended some other local experices in the area. We strongly recommended
We had an absolutely fantastic wine tasting for 7 of us. The value for money is excellent: tour of the vineyards, cellars, a tasting of 9 different wines and nibbles. Federico was friendly and informative and gave us a really good background to all the local grapes and areas. You can also buy the wines at very reasonable prices. I higly recommend!
