Selvadolce is a small biodynamic domaine run by Aris Blancardi right on the coast of Liguria in Bordighera. After working as a horse veterinarian, Aris came back to the family business, taking over his father’s work and improved the farming practices by looking for alternative ways to grow flowers. He first learnt the basics of biodynamic farming in Langhe, then followed up with a course led by Nicholas Joly that convinced him to start making wine at Selvadolce.

VB1 is 100% Vermentino that undergoes a long maceration on skins and rests in old oak barrels for 1 year - hence VB1. An enthralling orange wine with a plethora of dried fruit and nut aromas, loads of spice and surprising freshness on the long, linear palate.
