Tenuta di Valgiano, established in 1992, is by no means a new estate or producer, however they are brand-new to Ohio as of summer 2023! The Cru visited this property at the start of harvest and were immediately charmed by winemaker Laura di Collobiano and partner Moreno Petrini. Their property, which boasts olive groves, bee hives, chickens, a 11th century villa and chapel, as well as 40 acres of vineyards, is located in Lucca, the coastal part of Tuscany. While the duo does grows the Tuscan classic grape of Sangiovese, they also grow international varieties such as Merlot and Syrah, citing the grapes presence as an addition brought to the area during the Napoleonic wars. “Practical biodynamic” farming is by and large at the forefront of their terroir driven wines. The vineyards are sprinkled with indigenous herb and vegetable seeds at the start of each planting season to ensure a healthy ecosystem and soil structure. In addition to wine, Valgiano makes delicious wild honey and olive oil which we were lucky enough to get our hands on!
This is Valgiano’s blended honey and means “a thousand flowers.” The flowers are predominantly Alfa Alfa, clover, sunflower, prunus, and Mediterranean Scrub. Try this honey mixed with Valigiano’s olive oil and bread for the perfect Arabian style breakfast.
