Winery Profile:
La Valentina Farm was born on the hills overlooking Spoltore, which is near Pescara in Central Italy, in 1990.

The winery has got 2 vineyards, one located in the Spoltore are where also the cellar is located. This area is very close to the coast and the vines are on a hill between 150 to 200 meters above the sea level. This terroir gives more elegance to the wines compared to the vineyards located in San Valentino in Abruzzo Citeriore at the feet of the Maiella mountain. At an altitude between 300 & 400 meters, a completely different climate conditions that give wines a more richness in terms of flavours and aromas.

The owners, Sabatino, Roberto e Andrea Di Properzio, have been running the company since putting their development project into action in 1994. After the first few years spent studying the Santa Teresa vineyard, their continuous efforts to keep improving quality and to achieve recognition for the high-quality D.O.C. wines from the Abruzzo region have become the principal goals in the company philosophy. Today La Valentina adheres completely to the principles of sustainable development and considers sustainability and respect for the environment as driving propositions.
