Harvest in full swing at Pievalta in Castelli di Jesi

Harvest in full swing at Pievalta in Castelli di Jesi | Wines and People | Scoop.it

We have already finished picking the grapes from our younger wines.

These include the “Verenda” parcel, so called because it lies just below the veranda we use as our tasting room; “Orfeo,” the vineyard that takes its name from Orpheus in Greek mythology; and “Pieve,” which means “parish church” in Italian and takes its name from the chapel that lies in the middle of the vineyard at the entrance to our estate.

Now we’ll start picking the Verdicchio that is destined to become our flagship Pievalta label and our Dominé.

Today, we began picking our “Emporio” vineyard, which was planted in 1970. It takes its name from the fact that it borders on what was once a general store and an old tavern where people stopped to eat bread and salami paired with a nice glass of Verdicchio, of course!

The Le Marche region has a lot to offer to wine lovers. There are 5 DOCG wines and 16 DOC wines. From the prestigious and famous Verdicchio, to the Vernaccia di Serrapetrona, from the Offida Pecorino to the Offida Passerina. Also: Bianchello del Metauro, Colli Maceratesi, Colli Pesaresi, Esino, Falerio dei Colli Ascolani, I Terreni di Sanseverino, Lacrima di Morro d'Alba, Rosso Conero, Pergola, Rosso Piceno, San Ginesio Many of these wines are little known outside of Italy but visitors to the region have a pleasant surprise when they try the local wine produced by many small aziendas and cantinas.
