Artisans of wine
The story of our winery begins in Valpolicella, where Valentina and Giancarlo grew up and met.
Giancarlo’s family has been engaged in the wine growing sector since the 19th century, while Valentina started to develop her passion for oenology after she met her husband.
In 1969 the couple decided to invest its savings in Fumane and bought 7 of the current 10 hectares located in important crus such as Monte Tenda, Monte Crosetta and Rasso.
These vineyards are the most valued assets of this company and only organic agronomic techniques are applied to them.
The organic certification was very close to the heart of Valentina, who strongly desired to achieve it, and is also a firm part of the whole family’s philosophy.
Our goal is to tune in with nature and leave future generations with a better, healthier and richly rewarding environment.
We consider ourselves wine craftsmen.
We produce wines using exclusively our grapes, strictly hand harvested by a team of reliable and skilled collaborators, able to select only perfect bunches which then later will become wine.
During the fermentation process, the winery is filled with an inebriating aroma of wine, fresh fruit and flowers. This is the most exciting time of the year for us and we love to share it with those who appreciate our products and our winery.
Hospitality and sharing are essential values, as well as our willingness to achieve excellent results.
Our approach has not a strictly commercial connotation, but it is always quality-oriented – we analyse and taste our wines before we decide when we should place them on the market, and we also perform a number of rigorous evaluations.
Thanks to our accurate work we can treat the palates of our customers.
The organic approach begins with the very first experimentations in a vineyard close to the city of Verona and then soon in our entire estate.
Organic matter is one of the fundamental parts of the soil; unfortunately in recent years the indiscriminate use of inorganic fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides, along with an inadequate restoration of the land, resulted in the generalized decrease of humus content in the soil – in particular in the Po valley – which may lead to the desertification of the land…
Great wines do not originate in wineries but in vineyards.
This is the concept at the base of the whole wine-making process of Valentina Cubi.
Our wines bear their own names dedicated to the Valpolicella territories and history, and boast their own characters.
IPERICO, the Valpolicella Classico, was the first organic wine we ever produced. It boasts floral, fruity and pleasantly spiced notes. It is immediately after racking, decanting and steel refinement. This is an everyday..
With us you will stay in an exclusive environment, rediscovering the pleasure of outdoor life, the rhythms of a winery in Valpolicella, the relaxation of a region marked by the rhythms of nature. Our rooms, common areas and courtyard are inspired by the traditional raw materials of the area, and are housed in an ancient rural court. The rooms are five, two suites and three double rooms.
A great wine has not its origin in the cellar, but in the vineyard. It is from this concept that the whole vinification of Valentina Cubi starts.
All our wines have a proper name dedicated to the territory of Valpolicella and its history, and each has a precise character.
