Passalacqua Mare Foresta


After a stretch of working in the business sector in London and having her first daughter, Gulia, Valentina Passalacqua returned to her childhood home, Arpicena, in Puglia. This decision came with the desire to have a deeper connection with nature and work the land on which she was raised. She returned to her family’s vineyards, located in the Gargano National Park, with an aim to grow healthy grapes and rediscover a connectedness with the land. This bit of land is special in that it is a calcareous outcropping that dates back to the Jurassic era. This type of limestone rich soil is not widely found in Puglia making her plot of vines special, showing unique terroir. Today she farms 80 hectares of vines, as of which are farmed biodynamically and are grapes traditional to Puglia.

The Mare E Foresta is a deeper example of Ramato. Made from 100% Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio, the wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts and macerated on the skins for 7 days. It was bottled without filtering or fining. Brassy amber in colour, it expresses notes of orange peel, apricots, honeysuckle, and juniper.
