Farina of Veneto was founded in the early 1900s with a passion and desire for producing the highest quality wines possible from the Veneto region. Cousins Claudio and Elena Farina; now 3rd generation are responsible for continuity of the Farina tradition and oversee all elements of production and evolution.
Farina is located in San Pietro in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico; the historical and original Valpolicella. 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.
Production focuses on extracting the most pure and highest quality expressions of Valpolicella through to Ripasso and Amarone, complimented by generous Pinot Grigio and Prosecco, all delivering exceptional generosity and value.
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.
