They are a high-end product and one of the greatest pride of our territory and of the Made in Italy. The history of the Bava family is that of the Italian wine tradition: originated in 1911, when the wine cellar of Cocconato was built.
Bava wines are the result of the Italian tradition and heritage: since the foundation of the wine cellar in strada Monferrato in Cocconato, four generations have taken turns and a fifth is approaching the helm of company. Today, the family property extends between Monferrato and Langhe, with fifty hectares of vineyards cultivated with the same sensibility and care of the past, for a sustainable agricolture with reduced environment impact.

In addiction to Barbera, Cocconato cultivates an autochthonous piedmontese that is becoming increasingly know, the Albarossa Rosingana. This is where the two white wines from international grape varieties, Sauvignon Relais Bianc and Chardonnay Thou Bianc are produced. From the farmstead of Pianoalto di Agliano (also in province of Asti) come Libera, the youngest Barbera, and Pianoalto, the Nizza of Bava.
