The "Braida di Giacomo Bologna" winery is located in the municipality of Rocchetta Tànaro (province of Asti) in the Italian region of Piedmont. It was founded by Guiseppe Bologna and is named after his nickname "Braida". In the early 1970s it was taken over by his son Giacomo Bologna (+1990). The vineyards are planted with Barbera, Brachetto, Chardonnay, Dolcetto, Pinot Nero, Riesling Renano (Rhine Riesling) and others. Today the exquisite estate is run in Californian style by his widow Anna and his children Guiseppe "Bepe" and Raffaela. During a stay in California in the 1970s, Giacomo Bologna was confronted with barrique ageing by the famous oenologist André Tchelistcheff (1901-1994) and became a fan of French style wines. He became a pioneer of Italian viticulture and created a new style of long-lasting, highly concentrated red wines.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
