La Meirana Gavi di Gavi DOCG
Piemonte

This is the most representative and classic wine produced by the winery and it is for this reason that its label carries the name “Meirana” on it. As a matter of fact the oldest document which states the origin of the name “Gavi” is preserved at the Record Office in Genova and mentions vineyard and chestnut woods on a spot called Meirana. That document dates back to 971 A.D.
