Here is what you will live

Welcome to our byodinamic estate in the southern part of Piedmont and get ready for a special experience!

This incredible tour of La Raia starts from the origins of our leading product: the vineyards. Over 42 hectares of marly clay soil with a perfect exposure. 

The exposure and the microclimate grant our Gavis that mineral hint which is the distinctive feature of this vine variety. The visit comprises in particular the farm’s oldest vineyards: La Madonnina, from which our GAVI DOCG Riserva is produced, and La Cascinetta, from which our GAVI DOCG Pisé, our best selection, derives.

The tour will then focus on the cellar, with its unique architecture, which perfectly melts contemporary materials such as glass, steel and layered wood, with ancient building techniques, such as rammed earth. Its distinctive feature in fact, is the great pisé wall created by the Austrian artist and architect Martin Rauch, the greatest international expert of this technique.
You will then receive an explanation of the winemaking methods which is particularly interesting because the whole wine making process is Demeter certified and therefore it follows the biodynamic principles of low temperatures, a slightest usage of sulphur and indigenous yeasts.

Outside of the winery,  you will live a great new experience. 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, Nel momento and Sabato piantare il cipresso, the fourth garden realized by Salvadori, represent a sort of guidance for observing spaces and nature in a different way.

The wine tour lasts about two hours during which you will be able to visit the vineyards, with a detailed explanation of the techniques of biodynamic entry, the works of art present at the estate and the winery.

Don't worry, you'll also drink our wines! Indeed, you will have the possibility to taste 3 wines! This experience will be held in the cellar during winter or near the lake of the estate during summer and spring.

Wonderful afternoon at La Raia

9/1/21
This was an experience as you have imagined. First a very warm welcome at the vineyard with a very knowledgeable tour. We learned a lot about organic and biodynamics and how this is being applied ar the vineyard. La Raia has a small production area so don’t expect a full production process and cellars of wine bottles. It is a specialized factory with eyes for details. After the tour we had a tasting where we again learned about the vineyard, the grapes and the wines. The lunch is at an other location, you drive there with your own car. An ideal spot for a lovely lunch. A very well spend afternoon. Highly recommended.
