Collection: Valentina Passalacqua

Valentina Passalacqua, a winegrower working in the Gargano region in the north of the Puglia vineyards (the Great Italian South!), offers pure wines, highlighting the minerality of her limestone terroir.
Winery has been run by her family for several generations and consists of 80 hectares of vineyards in the Gargano National Park  The terroir is made up of Kimmeridgian limestone soils from the Jurassic (similar to Chablis) which gives a certain minerality to the wines produced.
Extremely sensitive to the well-being of her family and the nature that surrounds her, Valentina leads the Winery in organic farming. The latter has been certified since 1999.
Also very attached to the relationship between living beings and the environment in which it evolves,
Valentina has been applying biodynamic practices at Winery since 2000 and harvesting is done by hand.
Through her wines Valentina Passalacqua  wishes to show the unique expression of the region's indigenous and traditional grape varieties: Nero di Troia, Primitivo, Negroamaro, Bombino bianco and Montepulciano.
The wines are not fined or filtered, and bottling is done with little or no sulphur.

Contrary to what is currently done in the vineyards of Puglia, Valentina seeks for her wines the expression of the minerality of her terroir, giving priority to juices that are fruity and low in alcohol
