Tenuta Olim Bauda
Country: Piedmont - Italy
Tenuta Olim Bauda has been in the Bertolino family since the 1960's and was the jewel in the crown of their negociant business.
Tragically Sr. Bertolino died in 1985 leaving three very young children and no-one to run the business. Overnight, the thriving winery was closed down and for the next 15 years the fruit from their fantastic vineyards was sold to other producers.
In 2000, the three siblings decided to try to revive the estate's fortunes and since then, have managed to re-establish Tenuta Olim Bauda as one of Piedmont's top producers.
The grapes are grown exclusively in the vineyards on the estate and only the highest quality are selected for these wines. The final result - elegant, refined Gavi's and vibrant, juicy Barbera's that tantalise the palate.
A little help from the famous consultant Beppe Caviola along with the acquisition of a prime site in the Gavi di Gavi DOC means they now produce a range of Gavi and Barbera d'Asti wines which have won huge acclaim including 3 Bicchieri from the Gambero Rosso for the last 3 vintages of the top Barbera ´Nizza´ and 92 points from Parker.
