Riccardo and Francesco Chiabrando’s company is mainly, as is common in the Pinerolo area, oriented to growing fruits (apples, apricots, cherry, kiwi, persimmons and blueberries) with about 6 of the 62 total hectares used for grape growing at an altitude of 370 metres above sea level. It is a member of the consortium to promote fruit from Pinerolo (‘Pinfruit’). Ever since way back in 1690, the Boutal farmhouse, then owned by the Earls Des Geneis, has been making wine.
This long tradition of production, the expression of a close connection to the land and a constant commitment, has always involved growing Freisa, Bonarda, Barbera, Dolcetto and other smaller grape varieties now included in the Pinerolo DOC. They are all grapes native to the Piedmont, grown in especially suitable areas, and they are the basis for local wines with special sensory qualities.
