The winery is situated in the town of Barolo and the winery faces the Piazza del Peso, Where via Monforte e la via Vittorio Veneto (so-called Via Nuova) meet. From here, looking to the hills, one can understand the amount of work that is necessary to transform the looked after gardens of town to the steep hillside vineyards that are neccessary to obtain grapes of grand quality.
The winery vinifies only the grapes provided by the estate vineyards, about 2 1/2 hectates, situated in some of best zones of the Barolo area: 2 hectares in locality Cannubi and Cannubi San Lorenzo, the rest in locality Via Nuova (Collina Terlo); the zone most known per the grape Nebbiolo that becomes Barolo.
As a top producer, Chiara Boschis, is always seeking to produce high quality and innovative wines that are elegantly balanced wines along with traditional structure and austerity. To further this effort she started to vinify separately the vineyards, Cannubi and Vian Nuova, to best show their individual characteristics
