The winemaking activity dates to the second half of the 19th century when Commander Vincenzo De Marco successfully started the production and marketing of bulk wines in France and Tuscany.
The company born from the union of the lands of Professor Donato Vallone with those given as a dowry by Commendatore De Marco to his daughter Maria: the marriage deed of 1934 establishes the merger of two estates, the Tenuta Flaminio of Brindisi with the Tenuta Iore of San Pancrazio Salentino.
Later, at the end of the 1960s, the splendid Castel Serranova estate was added.
The history of the Vallone Company is the story of a family that dedicated passion to seeing its original wine project grow and which, in the second half of the last century, became the protagonist of an innovative process with which it contributed to changing the perception of Apulian wine in Italy and in the world.
Vallone is a production company of 500 hectares divided into 3 estates in the municipalities of San Pancrazio Salentino, San Pietro Vernotico and Carovigno.
We are interested in each wine emphasizing the characteristics of the grape variety of origin, in a precise way, managing to involve without excess or forcing.
The company overcame several historical cycles and numerous generational transitions. Vallone’s basic goal is to maintain, with the right alchemy, its identity without however appearing obsolete in its stylistic and oenological approach.
