La Meirana is the name of the Broglia family estate, established by Bruno Broglia and managed today by his sons, Gian Piero and Paolo, who continue the winery’s ultra-millenary tradition. The whole estate’s 250 acres are planted with Cortese with an average yield per acre of 95 quintals due to the laws regulating the Gavi di Gavi appellation. The Broglia family acquired this historic estate in 1972, two years before the area received the designation of Gavi DOCG. Broglia was the first estate to
collaborate with the Universita` di Torino in clonal research of the zone’s prized Cortese varietal. However, in the winery, which was renovated in 2000, the best of modern winemaking techniques is used to continue and elevate the tradition of Gavi.
