If you love Burgundies, but want something a little more approachable and less expensive, check out this Valpolicella Classico from Ca La Bionda! Their wines are incredibly complex with wonderful minerality and poise. If you’re a Pinot Noir lover, this is a wine you need to explore!

Ca' La Bionda was started in 1902 by Alsessandro's great-great-grandfather and continues thriving today. Alessandro worked at Chateau Margaux and other top European estates before returning to oversee his family's small organic farm near Verona. We’ve seen firsthand Ca’La Bionda’s capacity to “flip” our customers from Valpolicella doubters to lovers. In terms of complexity, cellar aging potential and bona fide soil character, this property is simply a cut above the rest.

🤓 Geeky Stuff Behind the Wine:

With over a century of history, this small estate is producing what we believe is some of the best and most interesting wines in Italy's Veneto region. . We suggest you try their wines – especially their "Bianco del Casal" (Ancient vine, Grand Cru Burgundy-style Garganega/Trebbiano) – to see why so many people love them.

When we first tasted Ca' La Bionda's wines, we knew Alessandro Castellani was on to something. Fresh, vibrant and well balanced yet with incredible complexity and cellar aging potential, these wines have an elegance and power that reminded us of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. 

Valpolicella Classico is Italy’s answer to Burgundy Pinot Noir. Ca’ La Bionda wines are minerally, silky, and ethereal, boasting a backbone of red fruit that is the hallmark of this unique subregion.
