Marinella bought these vineyards to produce wine with her daughter Alda Faccio. Now converted to biodynamics, this is a wonderfully fresh Soave, with stone fruits, almonds and great acidity.
Grapes: 80% Garganega: 10% Trebbiano di Soave: 10% Chardonnay
Region: Veneto, Italy
Tasting notes/pairing options: Crisp and mineral with lovely linear acidity and subtle hints of creamy peach and underlying nutty almond tones. The balance between citrus and stone fruit makes this a very easy wine to drink indeed.
Biodynamic, suitable for vegans and vegetarians
This is the second property of Marinella Camerani who also owns the nearby Corte Sant’Alda, her daughter Alda has now taken charge of the day to day running of the winery.The estate farms organically, and promotes biodiversity by planting olive and cherry trees and leaving fallow areas between their vineyards, which provide habitats for the wildlife that helps fight off pests and diseases. Adalia is a reference to Adalia Bipunctuata, a two dotted ladybird very common in their vineyards, and particularly efficient at keeping aphids at bay. Their food friendly wines: an unoaked Soave, a Valpolicella and a Ripasso, are all made using natural yeast ferments and mostly ageing in stainless steel and emphasise elegance over power.
We are a close family business and are currently in our second generation. We are based on our natural lavender farm, Yorkshire Lavender in the North Yorkshire countryside.
So why wine?
With a member of our staff, Timi, a trained sommelier; it seemed crazy to let that enthusiasm and experience go to waste.
Wine starts in the ground! Just like lavender the correct soil, conditions and care are vital to grow excellent grapes to make exceptional wine.
Our commitment to our natural lavender farm along with Timi’s enthusiastic expertise has led to a developing interest in natural, organic, bio-dynamic wines.
