The history of the Azienda began in 1919 when Telesforo Boschis moved from the vineyards of Barolo to the hill of Pianezzo, in Dogliani. After a few days born his son Francesco. Telesforo continues his work planting new vineyards. It was in 1968 that Francesco and his son Mario started to make a part of the grapes, producing a few hundred bottles of the wine now known as ” Pianezzo “. The experience has been made to permit the most of the natural characteristics of different vines and soils, and their exposure to the sun gives. For this reason they started to produce the grapes of some vineyards in 1983 the ” Vigna dei Prey “, in 1986 the ” Sorì San Martino ” and in 2001 the ” Vigna del Ciliegio“. Vineyards are planted in the azienda’s most suited areas, but there are hazelnuts, fields and meadows. We produce different kinds of grapes: Dolcetto(80% of the total productions), our area has a perfect climate condition for this variety, Barbera, Freisa, Grignolino and Sauvignon Blanc . The European Union Program for an eco-compatible Agriculture (Misura Agroambientale 214.1). We reduce pesticide treatments and we do not use fertilizer but natural mature produced in our little stable. The wines are unfiltered and can not be bottled in a perfect natural presence of sediments. Mario and Simona run the estate with their parents Paolo and Marco. Our labels are all designed by Teresita Terreno except the “Vigna del Ciliegio” which ismali’s (Marianne) opera.
