BERA VITTORIO E FIGLI, Alessandra Bera, Sant’Antonio di Canelli
In 1785 Giovanni Battista Bera bought land from the Community of the Sovereign Order of the Knights of Malta. The vineyards are situated in Sant’Antonio di Canelli, Regione Serra Masio, the heart of the most qualified, the most prestigious, and the most ancient area of Moscato production.
Later purchases of land brought the total farm area to 12 hectares, which are still farmed in the traditional family way. The vineyards are facing towards the south-east on slopes of from 50 to 70%. The ground is marmoreal and strongly calcareous, originating by ancient sea-beds which surfaced five million years ago. Climatic conditions are particularly favourable: not too wet, with rain falling only in winter and in the spring months. The temperatures are never too extreme, there are never late frosts and although summer storms with hail are frequent, they are never violent enough to damage. It is windy until summer.
Alessandra Bera produces unique, full of character wines using organic and natural production methods. Farming is carried out with complete respect for the environment, the countryside and the area in which the Bera family live, following age-old traditions of their forefathers: all the maintenance of the vines and the piking of the grapes are done by hand.
