Conversion Project To Organic: Biodynamic Production Techniques

50 years ago Giancarlo and Valentina bought the estate that has now become the Azienda Agricola Valentina Cubi. The hills of Valpolicella, where the vineyards are located, are one of the most important wine territories in Italy and one of the most valuable in the region. The visit to the cellar is a real experience since all the production phases are followed internally, from the vineyard to the bottle and all the grapes are harvested by hand.

The conversion project to organic was strongly desired by Valentina, who believes in respecting the environment and the vineyard and protecting them. Now each wine is certified organic and, in the vine- yards, we work using biodynamic production techniques.

Valentina and Giancarlo’s goal has remained the same from the beginning: to market excellent Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone, Recioto, strictly organic certified, aiming to quality while respecting tradition and territory, in bottle and with their own brand. Every strategic choice made from the year of its foundation until today, has been made with this vision.

The wines have always stood out for their fresh and fruity style, for their great drinkability and for their authenticity, characteristics due to the decision to use only their own grapes and only the typical varieties of Valpolicella (Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara). Since 2007, Valentina has started converting her vineyards to organic farming, starting from an environmentally friendly protocol in which the vineyards and the territory have always been safeguarded, rather than yield and total quantity.

The first certification arrived in 2010 and the general one in 2014. Valentina Cubi also produces organic extra virgin olive oil. It is called Verbasco, as the yellow flower that grows in Valpolicella, and it comes from our olive tree varieties Favarol, Leccino Frantoio and Grignano. 70% of the company’s wines and extravirgin olive oil are exported to 15 countries around the world including Canada, USA, Holland, Great Britain, Belgium and Switzerland.

The winery follows a qualitative and never commercial protocol, analyzing and tasting wines in order to decide when to place them on the market. A meticulous work for the pleasure of the palate. www.valentinacubi.it
