How the Boffa winery has escaped discovery by an importer is amazing. They are located in the heart of the town of Barbaresco right across the street from Gaja. Unlike the unwelcoming steel gates of the Gaja fortress the Boffa family welcomes tasters offering an extensive tasting of their wines along with a pleasant assortment of antipasti for 5 Euro a head. The spectacular view from the Boffa's patio is reason enough to stop here, but an even better reason is their delicious wines. All the wines of Boffa are highly recommended. The wines are produced in the traditional style with not a barrique in sight. Current recommended releases include:
2003 Dolcetto d'Alba - B+.
2002 Barbera d'Alba, Vigna Bushet - B+
2001 Barbaresco Vitalotti - A-
2001 Barbaresco Vigna del Casot – A
