PIRA CHIARA BOSCHIS
Pira is an old family of viticolturists that -between the end of ‘800 and the beginning of ‘900 producers.
This prosperous patrirachal family unit declined as all its male components started to die young one after another, until the tragic end of Luigi Pira, a noble man who believed in the importance of traditions: the last one to tread the grapes and to make wine without mechanical devices.
About a year after his death, his sisters, who couldn’t manage the family business but were willing to carry on the tradition, sold the farm to their old friends family Boschis.
Now Chiara Boschis, after a degree in Economics, manages the farm following her passion for wine and believing in this “great small farm”.
The output is still very small (about 12.000 bottles each year) and the wine is exclusively made from grapes grown in our vineyard.
Chiara Boschis has some six hectares of vines under cultivation in the commune of Barolo
She graduated with degree in economics but gained experience while working with her brothers at the historical Borgogno estate.
As one of few women winemakers in the Langhe, she is necessarily of unquestionable confidence, determination, patience and charm.
The Barolo “Mosconi” by Chiara Boschis is a deep, austere and very elegant interpretation of the typology, with a clear territorial imprint of the Mosconi cru from Monforte d’Alba.
