La Valle, owned by the Pezzola family, is in Rodengo Saiano in the heart of the beautiful hills of Franciacorta. It is located in a region particularly well suited for viticulture, near a famous Olivetan monastery of the 11th century, a few kilometers from Lake Iseo and Brescia in Lombardy.
It takes its name from the winery’s main property, La Valle® (bought by the family’s ancestors in long-ago 1890, as a notary deed of the time demonstrates) which has always been a vineyard.
In 1990 Eugenio and Giulia Pezzola founded the winery known as La Valle® exclusively for the production of prestigious Franciacorta sparkling wines and they dedicated it their father Giovanni and their uncle Innocenzo, who had always been particularly attached to this land.
The historic vineyards of the company, cultivated with love, include La Valle®, Roccolo, Bredina, and Tesa. They enjoy a unique and extraordinary microclimate and they produce high-quality grapes, rich in scent and taste, from noble vines of Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Nero. In 1993 the first 3000 bottles of the millésime (a few bottles of which are still jealously guarded) were produced.
In the years that followed the collaboration of the family’s children, the family’s love for the land and its grapes, and the help of prestigious enologists such as Jeanne Pierre Valade made La Valle® a well-known name, synonymous with quality Franciacorta wines.
Each of the wines has been given a special name in Latin, such as Primum, Naturalis, Regium, and Zerum, reminiscent of the long-ago times when wine was the protagonist of incredible feasts. The historic wine-cellar, old and evocative, inside the characteristic family manor dating back to the 1400s is a quiet place of peace and tranquility where the prestigious and exclusive bottles of vintage and reserve wines rest and age; it has now also become a place for receiving visitors and organizing tastings, wine events, and guided tours of the winery. In 2010 La Valle® completed work on their new wine cellar, a model of innovative modern technology, dedicated primarily to the winemaking process.
In this way poetry and technique come together and the past and the future meet, each demonstrating its own charms, to create a work of art.
La Valle®: a fascinating world to discover, full of unique and unforgettable sensations.
