Piero Broglia released his first wine from his father’s La Meirana estate in 1974, but there is a record of vines at the property that dates back to 971 AD, the very beginning of the story of Gavi. An MP with a law degree, Piero is a born researcher, having provided Italy’s first register of satellite-mapped vineyards, in Gavi, and carried out a study into clones of Cortese, the local vine.

Broglia currently own around 100 hectares of land, of which half is under vine. The vineyards are generally south-facing, on clay/marl soil. The La Meirana bottling, named after the estate itself, is sourced from many different parcels within it, to give a complete expression of this ancient site.

The grapes were pressed straight after harvest and then fermented in stainless steel at 18-20ºC. The wine is unoaked and was bottled after a few months’ maturation in tank.
