Bava

About

The Bava Family has grown grape vines in Cocconato, a village that rises steeply up the hillsides of the Monferrato Astigiano territory, since 1600 and in 1911 in the very same area the family built their first wine cellar. Since then, over a hundred vintages have gone by, with six generations following one another. The best Bava Barberas are renowned in the world thanks to their high quality. Today, the family estate extends in Monferrato and Langa, with fifty hectares of vineyards and twenty hectares of natural fields and woods, cultivated with the same awareness, care and attention of the olden times resulting in a sustainable agriculture with a reduced environmental impact.
