100-year old history

Tenuta Le Fracce was established by Giulio Bussolera in Lombardy’s Mairano di Casteggio, a top wine region in western Oltrepo Pavese. It extends as a triangle between Emilia, Piedmont, and Liguria. Fernando Bussolera inherited vineyards from his father and planted new vines in a 50-hectare land. A park was also set up next to the vineyards. The place has an enchanting flora and fauna, and the owners aim to show their love for art, nature, and viticulture through their wines. It is home to the Bussolera-Branca foundation and a park that has ancient statues and thousands of trees.

Combination of art, wines, and nature

Le Fracce also has a historical Casa dell’Art Brut and a collection of famous artworks. The landscape in Oltrepo Pavese is a mix of woods and vineyards with multiple hills and old castles. Roberto Gerbino took over the company in 1999 and worked according to scientific research. Many new techniques were used as the use of mushrooms to give diversity to wines. It is an important area for Pinot Noir grapes, and they also grow Bonarda, Croatina, Barbera, and Riesling to make red, white, and sparkling wines.

Winery funded by Bussolera-Branca Foundation

The best grapes are brought to the cellar for vinification. Le Fracce makes high-quality Oltrepo Pavese wines, which include traditional reds, varietal whites, sparkling wines, and special reserves. In 2003, two special labels dedicated to the noble Pinot noir were made: Moro and Riserva. The winery carries out winemaking with eco-sustainable techniques funded by the Bussolera-Branca Foundation, which works for the enhancement and preservation of the local culture and heritage.
