E. PIRA & FIGLI - CHIARA BOSCHIS

See available wine for this province
Winery's website

Chiara Boschis has an incredible story. In a region where women winemakers are far from the norm she has built a collection of wines that is the envy of many. The E Pira e Figli estate was passed from father to son for centuries, until the late 1980’s when Luigi Pira passed away. At that time his sisters who inherited the vineyards felt that they could no longer maintain the estate. Hoping to keep the tradition alive they sold the estate to Chiara Boschis whose family had long been friends of the Pira’s. Crackling with energy and determination Chiara has proceeded to turn out one fantastic wine after another from her small parcels totaling 6 ha (including a small portion of the famed Cannubi vineyard). Small in stature, but exuding confidence and passion, Chiara produces some of the most refined and elegant wines in the region. These wines absolutely sparkle with life!

    "Given the explosion in prices for so many top Barolos, I am often asked who are the next set of producers that will reach superstar status. Well, Chiara Boschis is one of them."
