Le Piane

In the 90s, and together with enologist Alexander Trolf, I visited Boca and its forgotten vineyards and we became enthusiastic about the region and it’s excellent potential. 

Sadly, Alexander Trolf was killed in 1998 in a road accident and did not live to see the results of this successful development. His ideas and dreams, however, remain in the “Meridiana” vineyard that he had replanted. The prominent yellow house there has become the company’s logo and thus symbolizes a new beginning. A group of international friends of wine culture is financing the project.

The combination of its soil and microclimate provides a fortunate opportunity for the region of BOCA DOC. The soil is porphyritic (volcanic origin), ground on its surface to fine gravel. This soil is unique in Italy. The moderate climate of the Lower Alps characterized by high autumnal temperatures, together with intensive sunshine thanks to the south facing position and with high temperature changes, creates optimal conditions for perfect maturity of the grapes. The vineyards embedded between the surrounding hills are protected against cold Alpine winds.
