CELLAR

Name: Terralba
Address: Frazione Inselmina 25 - Berzano di Tortona (AL)
Web Site: www.terralbavini.com/vini.htm

TERRALBA The farm is owned by the family since the early '900; Vincent's great-grandfather bought the land (about 3 ha) by Conte Boniforte Busseti, then owner of almost the entire City of Berzano. Of those 3 has 2 were planted with vineyards (Barbera, Timorasso and Croatina). The grapes produced was all vinified and wine sold to Piedmont and Liguria traders. Timorasso in that period came from the cellars a few days after the wine to reach the Swiss and German markets under the name "Torbolino" (name due to the wine turbidity), where it was processed and sold later with fancy names, thus losing the 'initial identity. At first, the lack of details in the cellar technology was an imposition of economic status, is now a choice made with the knowledge of the winemaker craftsman who transforms the raw material in respect of traditions, without being influenced by the fashions every year require certified wines, soul and personality, that have nothing to do with the territories in which they are born. (the maximum that nowadays offers wine quality methodology are the small French oak barrels, and the timetables of aging.)
