The name of this wine comes from the “valley” (in Italian “VALLE” or “VAL” for short) where the Corvina grape grows, which we use to make our wine VALSORDA. It is a small valley that starts at the foot of Monte Moscal in Affi and descends towards Bardolino. The valley was formed by the erosion of rainwater in a moraine of fine sand, gravel and also crumbly scree left by a glacier. The valley is narrow and deep at first, but opens up in the last part in a gravelly and nutritious area that slopes gently down to the lake, ideal for the production of quality wines. Since the valley has no rocky walls, the phenomenon of echoes is not present here and has therefore always been called “quiet valley” … or rather … “deaf valley”

(in Italian: VAL SORDA).
