Vin de la Neu was created to break the mold and to create a new category of wines: unique, different, and with significant evolutionary potential. To realize this ambition, Nicola Biasi decided to bring back quality viticulture to an area that is today given over to apples, but which was once an ideal place to plant vines.
Home to this project is the Valle di Non, in the Trentino Dolomites. This large plateau, in the shape of an elongated basin, is surrounded by mountains with an altitude that goes from 400 to 1200 meters asl on which plants are grown, rising to over 2000 meters for the mountainsides that circle the Valley.
Most of the earth in the area has a sandy composition, with just a small percentage of clay soil, testifying to lake deposits of glacial origin.
The relatively temperate climate of Valle di Non, in addition to generally good agrarian soil, has always been beneficial to agriculture, also thanks to the temperature extremes, which range annually from – 8° to + 35°.
Average annual rainfall is not very high (and indeed a network of irrigation channels here date back to the 18th century), ranging from 700 to 800 mm. In Còredo, the village that has given Vin de La Neu its identity, it rains an average of 75 days a year.
