THE COMPANY

Valdisole was born at the beginning of 2015 on the Roero hills in a small town called Corneliano d'Alba. Today that old vineyard is and continues to be expanded with the addition of both young and old vines. The Valdisole vineyards are all located in the DOCG Roero areas and mostly in the additional Valdistefano geographical denomination.

HISTORY

My very recent entrance in the winemaking world was pretty much unexpected. I’ve always been attracted by the world of gastronomy and attended many cooking classes as a hobby. Motivated by my curiosity to learn how to pair food with wine, a few years ago I started taking sommelier courses. I entered the world of wine almost as a teetotaler, but then it happened; I fell in love with the entire world of wine, starting to appreciate its history, quality, and study more and more.

Soon I felt the need to go beyond the wine tasting experience and understand the soul of the wine; in brief, to make it. Since I don’t originate from a family of winemakers, and as an absolute amateur, I bought the first vineyard online; on a website specializing in used things! Yes, you read that correctly. It was half a hectare of abandoned and shabby Nebbiolo. That's how Valdisole was born.

THE PHILOSOPHY

Valdisole is born out of curiosity, and this is the reason why our wines can seldom be described as "traditional".  Motivated by a great passion for wine and love towards everything that is original, essential, we are continually experimenting with new and old practices, applying to the grapes our region the winemaking techniques of other areas of the world. This is the reason why often in our wines you will find colours and perfumes that are not always expected or “typical”. In some way, they are the expression of philosophies at times visionary at times crazy that continue to evolve.

There is only one principle that remains invariable; from the vineyard to the winery, the only ingredient of our wine is the grape. In Valdisole we follow strictly the natural practices without using synthetic chemicals or enological forcing.

ORANGE WINES: A TREND OR THE RETURN TO THE ORIGIN?

Unusual colour...neither white nor red. Intense. Wines with a character of their own. You can’t have mixed feeling for the orange wines. Either you love with them or you hate them. But where does their colour come from? what is their story? Before the evolutions in the enological field and related technologies, white grapes were traditionally left with skin contact during the fermentation process (i.e. maceration) just like the red grapes. Maceration that can last from a few days to a few months, and is exactly this prolonged stay in contact with the grape skins that gives the characteristic amber colour to these wines. This procedure gives to the wine not only the colour; nutritive substances pass from the skins to the juice adding to the wines’ structure and longevity. Orange wines are simply wines made by white grapes, following the traditional method of winemaking. Depending on the variety, the length of the maceration (from a few days to a few months), and the refinement container (clay amphorae, wood or cement), these wines are intense and complex at nose. To follow this procedure the grapes must be mature, of excellent quality, and with the least possible treatments (if any). Only then the final product will be potentially a quality wine.
