About today’s guest producer Christoph Künzli:
Christoph Künzli is owner of Le Piane, the leading producer in Boca DOC in Alto Piemonte.
Originally from Switzerland, Christoph worked as an importer of Italian wine & in one of his travels became acquainted with the region of «Boca» in 1988 as well as with Antonio Cerri, one of the last local winegrowers in the area.
He fell in love with the uniqueness & beauty of the vineyards on the hillsides near Boca, so much so, that he decided to buy land & relocate there soon after.
Since then, he’s been making wines in the traditional style, maintaining old vines with local training methods, aging the wines in large Slavonian oak and working with native and traditional grape varieties.
