La Raia Estate produces certified organic wine and wheat, Elena, Piero and Irene will introduce you to the biodynamic philosophy.
The estate extends over 180 hectares, including 42 hectares of vineyards, 60 hectares of fields and all that remains are a mixture of pastures, chestnut, elderflower and acacia woodlands protecting numerous species of wild animals.
La Raia produces three kinds of multi-awarded Gavi D.O.C.G. – Gavi, Gavi Riserva Vigna della Madonnina and Gavi Pisé – and two kinds of Piemonte D.O.C. Barbera. The cellar has been thought and built with an ancient environmentally friendly construction technique. This technique harmonises with Piedmont’s gentle hills that surround La Raia.
Outside of the winery, a new experience awaits for the visitor. This is possible thanks to the Fondazione La Raia-arte cultura territorio which, through a project titled Nel Paesaggio (within the landscape), has commissioned three artworks to the artist Remo Salvadori. The works are inspired by La Raia’s architecture, its surroundings and its unique landscape in which vineyards, grazing and woodlands alternate along gentle hills. So, the pieces Continuo infinito presente, the fourth garden realized by Salvadori, represent a sort of guidance for observing spaces and nature in a different way.
The tour ends with a tasting of three or five of our labels that takes place inside the cellar during wintertime and close to the estate’s lake in spring and summertime. Wines are served with local organic products and courses prepared by the best 'taste artisans' of the area, using the raw materials produced at La Raia, such as the Monococcum Einkorn wheat which is cultivated according to biodynamic principles.
La Raia is located in a peaceful area of Gavi and surrounded by gorgeous countryside.
