PROUD GUARDIANS OF OUR TRADITION
La Chiara is the story of a family and their vineyards in the countryside around the town of Gavi, in the Piedmont region.
On the strength of their long-standing farming traditions, the Bergaglio family played a key role in the birth and the success of Gavi, and has been producing this great white wine in Piedmont for three generations.
It all originated from the great vision and passion of Ferdinando Bergaglio and his son Roberto, who realised the wine-making potential of the land. After a lifetime spent working at a historic local company, in 1976, Ferdinando – together with his newly wed son Roberto and daughter-in-law Silvana – decided to undertake a new adventure, by starting a family business, La Chiara.
Today, the company extends over a vast area, all of it in the municipality of Gavi, with 28 hectares occupied by vineyards cultivated with pride, passion, and according to traditional methods.
OUR FAMILY: THE BERGAGLIOS
The Bergaglios: a family that has always been inextricably linked with the Gavi region and its wine-growing traditions.
For three generations, their name has been synonymous with quality, experience, harmony.
An atmosphere that is immediately perceived as you reach the farm. A family-run business whose success lies in these roots, with a fourth generation of extremely young future entrepreneurs who are ready to take up the challenges of the third millennium.
The Azienda Agricola La Chiara rises a few kilometres from the centre of Gavi, on the hills of the Ligurian Preappennino mountain chain. It was founded by Ferdinando Bergaglio, born in 1912 in a family of farmers, and his son Roberto.
Over the years, La Chiara has diversified its product line-up, widening the range offered to its customers.
The “Gavi DOCG del Comune di Gavi” wines are the feather in the cap of the company, and the ones that get exported most widely.
The market covered by the company nowadays extends from the local to the international markets: Japan, the U.S. and Russia are just some of the countries were La Chiara wines are appreciated.
The company also produces sparkling wines, red wines typical of the Monferrato area, Grappa and Passito.
OUR LAND: GAVI
Very few regions in the world can boast a position and climate so favourable they can produce noble grapes yielding such valuable wines.
Undeniably, one of these fortunate lands is the land surrounding the town of Gavi, where the soil, the temperature, altitude and morphology all combine to give life to a landscape covered with thick rows of vines and wine-making enterprises.
This is the Val Lemme area of Piedmont, at the border with Liguria, a land with centuries old wine growing and wine making traditions.
It benefits from the temperate climate of the hills and the breeze coming from nearby Ligurian Sea: an area where the climate is not too hot, but the sun shines the year round.
OUR LOCATION, YOUR EVENT
Embedded in a green landscape, amidst flourishing vineyards, a few steps from the centre of Gavi, “La Chiara” is one of the most precious venues for events in the area.
The company can offer an unforgettable setting for high prestige meetings and conventions, parties and high-class ceremonies.
La Chiara is situated in a recently and carefully restructured estate, with a great reception hall for weddings, and private and corporate events.
At the disposal of its customers and their guests, La Chiara offers a careful and efficient 360-degree service, to make a wedding reception, a celebration, a convention into an unforgettable moment.
On request, in fact, La Chiara will provide ad hoc catering service, floral decor and, needless to say… a selection of unsurpassed quality wines.
