Valli Unite is a mixed cooperative farm created by several friends in the 1970’s at a time when Italy (and elsewhere) was embracing “chemical” farming with enthusiasm. Founders Ottavio-Enrico and Cesare felt this was all wrong. The farm now covers 100 hectares in the Colli Tortonesi, a hilly region in Piedmont to the the north of Genoa, with around 20 permanent members and more that come and go according to the season and all permanent members take the same pay. As well as vineyards they grow vegetables, many of which are used in their own restaurant, cereals, livestock and make their own salami, sausages etc.

Cortese is the grape synonymous with Gavi and the Piedmont area, here it is blended with a local varietal Timorasso. Fermentation happens spontaneously in stainless steel with no fining or filtration and only tiny amounts of sulphur added at bottling.
A funky nose but complex, fresh and clean and low in sulphates to boot. Great paired with pesto or seafood pasta
