Tenuta Olim Bauda has been in the Bertolino family since the 1960's and was the jewel in the crown of their negociant business. Tragically Sr. Bertolino died in 1985 leaving 3 very young children and no-one to run the business. Overnight, the thriving winery was closed down and for the next 15 years the fruit from their fantastic vineyards was sold to other producers. In 2000 the 3 siblings decided to try to revive the estate's fortunes and have, since then, managed to re-establish Tenuta Olim Bauda as one of Piedmont's top producers. A little help from the famous consultant Beppe Caviola and the acquisition of a prime site in the Gavi di Gavi DOC, means they now produce a range of Gavi's and Barbera d'Astis which have won huge acclaim including 3 Bichieri from the Gambero Rosso for the last 3 vintages of the top Barbera ´Nizza´ and 92 points from Parker.
