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
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 Bichieri from the Gambero
Rosso for the last 3 vintages of the top Barbera ´Nizza´ and 92
points from Parker.
