Valli Unite is a co-operative of 30 people, including farmers, breeders, beekeepers and winemakers, whose focus is propagating an ecosystem that is sustainable and in harmony with the nature. It was founded in Piedmonte over 40 years ago by Ottavio-Enrico and Cesare whose main goal was to revive a self-sufficient way of life with as little impact on nature as possible. Following their beliefs, they planted vineyards and built a stable to have organic fertilizers for the fields. Since 1981, the 100 hectares of land has been organically farmed, about 20 hectares are vineyards.
The winery is currently headed up by Alessandro who we visited in late 2021 to select this very fresh and vibrant expression of his winemaking skills.
We have been working with Valli Unite to bring you 'VALLI LUPI'. We travelled to the valley and tried wine direct from the tanks, jostling with locals bringing their 5L plastic bottles to refill. Alessandra Doldi who manages the winery told us of her dream of wolves in the valley and this 'VALLI LUPI' was born.
