Fidora Winery is located in the municipality of Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella which is 10 miles north of Verona. Verona is part of the Italian wine region Veneto, located about 80 miles northwest of Venice.
The Fidora family are now into their fourth generation of wine producers. In 1974 Guido Fidora decided to convert the family estate into one which embraces organic agriculture. In the 1970’s the concept of “organic” wine making was not well understood or practiced. There was little organic wine making expertise to draw upon so they have learnt through hard work, trial and error. Today the estate is one of the oldest examples of organic-vineyard cultivation in Italy and the oldest one in Veneto region.
The Veneto wine region is famous for making Prosecco which is an Italian sparkling white wine made from the grape variety Glera. Veneto also produces an abundance of Pinot Grigio. Valpolicella is a red grape variety which they also produce and often blended with lesser known grape varieties such as Corvina, Corvinone, Molinara and Rondinella. Valpolicella is a complex red wine and is usually a little bit more expensive than the other two.
Fidora produce all of the above using certified organic grapes which means no artificial herbicides and pesticides in the vineyard, allowing the freshness of the fruit to shine through. Fidora Pinot Grigio and Prosecco is produced from grapes in their Civranetta and Collagu Estates. Fidora Valpolicella reds are produced from grapes from Fumane and Montorio vines which are closer to Verona.
