Farina is located in San Pietro in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico; the historical and original Valpolicella. Cousins Claudio and Elena own 10 hectares of their own vineyards and source fruit from long standing grower partnerships which encompass a further 70 hectares under vine. All wines from Farina are produced with a key focus on sustainable farming and ongoing care of vine health. Whilst not certified organic, Claudio and Elena are attentive to this cultivation method. No pesticides are ever used, and natural techniques for pest control are encouraged such as a method known as sexual confusion. Ampules are placed in the vineyard which release a pheromone which interferes with how the male insect traces the female for reproduction; hence preventing critical outbreaks and maintaining a more healthy balance of the Farina vineyard ecosystem

Classic pear on the nose with a more complex baked apple danish note as well. The palate is a lovely mix of more complex texture- creamy, oaty lees, hazelnut, cashew, but across it all is a crisp line of acid, classic to the region. Very enjoyable.
