Chiara Boschis is widely recognized as one of the first women producers in Barolo, though she comes from eight generations of winemakers. In 1981, the Boschis family acquired the E. Pira & Figli estate, occupying some of the most prestigious land in Barolo. In 1990, Chiara took over the operation on her own, bringing dedication, charm, patience and determination to every aspect of production in order to raise the quality and image of the winery to that which it enjoys today. In 2010, Chiara’s younger brother Giorgio decided to join her, contributing a wealth of experience both in the vineyards as well as in the cellar.

Chiara is an artisan grower, whose philosophy is to craft wines that combine the extraordinary power of Barolo with approachability, balance, intense aromatics, and elegance. This equilibrium is achieved through strict vineyard management (all work is carried out manually), careful selection, organic farming practices and meticulous vinification techniques that favor a gentle touch, allowing the grapes to express their true character. She is a farmer first. Chiara then unites the best of traditional and modern winemaking techniques in a continuous endeavor to consistently produce high quality wines representative of their heritage.

Chiara has a very limited production of about 1,200 cases of Barolo each year. Her wines are made exclusively from the 6.5 hectares (16 acres) of proprietary vineyards in Barolo (Cannubi, Liste and Terlo), Monforte d’Alba (Mosconi, Ravera and Le Coste) and Serralunga d’Alba (Gabutti). Currently two single-vineyard Barolo wines are produced, Cannubi and Via Nuova, though a third (Mosconi) will be added to the line up in 2013. Chiara also produces three traditional Piedmont reds: Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba and Nebbiolo d’Alba.

“As one of the few women winemakers in the area, I wanted to produce a Barolo, a very strong and powerful wine, that showed a bit of its elegant side as well.” – Chiara Boschis
