Fattoria La Valentina was born in 1990 in the municipality of Spoltore, in the hills near Pescara. Since 1994, after a number of changes of partners, we are, Sabatino, Robert and Andrea Di Propertius, to buy the whole company. Between vineyards and winery, then began our work in close contact with nature. And its fruits. After the first year of study on the vineyards of Santa Teresa, a passion for quality research and the desire to exploit the DOC Abruzzo have taken over the main objective of becoming. We have begun to better understand our land and taking care of respecting her. The result? Wine quality and healthier than real. Animated by the certainty that the true quality improvement should be done in strict compliance with the biological, season after season, we have applied a strict philosophy that leaves from the unbridled use of chemistry and technology. In short, we have set ourselves to intervene as little as possible in the processes of nature, sharing the idea that "the premise of the DOC is the sign of their lives on the grapes." Ours is a job that allows the vine to express themselves, ensures the maintenance of soil fertility, helps make plants healthy so they can independently resist disease and pests. The wines of Fattoria La Valentina is produced by nature through the uniqueness of our land, we try to respect even in the bottle. This is the secret of their originality. The microclimate, soil linked to well-adapted varieties, yield wines of character and unique. Wines that speak of places and crops, which arise from the sum of many little details and the passion that we get every day. Authentic wines. Even for this La Valentina has chosen to join 100% of the principles of sustainable development and consider the environment and sustainability as factors of competitiveness. The training of all employees to perform their duties responsibly towards the environment and the continuous monitoring of compliance with the principles of sustainable development of the company, are essential to continuously improve the political and social and environmental performance of the company, which is also our family.
