Vej 270 Bianco Antico Podere Pradarolo, Natural, Orange Wine: complex, aromatic, herbaceous. This is a great value skin contact wine with plenty going on. It's textured, structured, complex but with plenty of freshness - hints of candied peel, and other classic Malvasia characteristics. Aged for 16 months in huge oak barrels (their words!) after a 90 day maceration. Fermentation of the organic grapes is spontaneous, no sulphur is added and the wine is bottled without filtration. If you like your orange wines this is well worth a punt with pork dishes, meaty fish or even hearty veg dishes. Claudia, part of the husband and wife team who run the estate, said about this wine: "VEJ is my wine, this ancient rose scented white wine, typical of Pradarolo and is really a feminine wine. I adore it. The natural wines thus have become my damnation, I can’t drink anything else, in fact I have developed an intolerance to sulphur that causes me heartburn and headaches. Be careful because real wine is addictive!"

The Pradarolo Farm is located in Serravalle, the town of Varano dè Melegari, in the lower valley of Ceno, in the Parma province. Purchased by the Carretti family in 1971, staring from 1989 the farm is gradually converted to the production of wines, reviving an old way of life on the farm. Alberto and Claudia now oversee the winemaking. They work with organic viticulture and long maceration of both red and white wines, native yeasts in order to obtain a wine which is healthy, long-lasting, natural, with an ancient flavour, original, and reflective of its terroir. The climate is tempered by a cooling sea breeze.
