“Valdonica happened to me, it was not planned. When looking for a small summer house Valdonica found me: I was touched to the bottom of my soul by the beauty of its nature! A few years later my life changed completely and I moved here – Valdonica has become my home.”
Dr. Martin Kerres, Valdonica
Using cutting-edge technology to make some of the best organic wines out there, Valdonica blends modernism with traditional Tuscan heritage. There’s a keen focus on the quality of the Tuscan soil, which is left untouched, producing delicious expressions of terroir in the wines. The uniqueness of Valdonica lies in the interplay of high altitude vineyards (up to 500 meters), the microclimate of the Mediterranean Sea, the volcanic soil and the spirit of their enthusiastic team.
Valdonica was born in 2008 with five wines made. From the vineyard to the bottle, the winemakers follow the flow of nature; fermenting in small batches with natural yeasts, and maturing in barriques or stainless steel. They continue to work with the greatest respect for nature, promoting minimal intervention but maximum flavour.
Key notes: Lively with notes of pear, grapefruit and a mineral finish. $39.00 SGD
Mersino | Vermentino | Italy | 2018
A lively, very drinkable white with aromas of pear, pink grapefruit with subtle notes of citrus zest. On the palate, a dry, complex minerality with a subtle saline finish. Refreshing and lively enough to stand up to many Asian dishes.
Key notes: Ripe red berries with notes of cacao. $39.00 SGD
Arnaio | Sangiovese blend | Italy | 2017
This classic, medium-bodied red wine runs wild with overripe strawberries, cacao and earthy notes. Soft on the tannins, rounded on the mouthfeel and with a medium to long finish, this cries out for a pasta or a hand-tossed pizza.
Key notes: Creamy and mineral with woody kitchen herbs. $55.00 SGD
Ballarino | Vermentino | Italy | 2012
A complex, structured and well-crafted creamy white wine. Floral with hints of eucalyptus and kitchen herbs followed by slight woody notes. Fresh on the palate, with a tasty mineral and savoury note. A very highly-rated natural wine that has won numerous awards. A wine that pairs just as well with salted egg yolk as it does with blue cheeses.
