Grape varieties: Catarratto
The wines that Valdibella provide as bag-in-box BIB packaging are the result of a very precise company policy: The grapes picked in excess which are not bottled are bought by the cooperative anyway, guaranteeing a fair price to their customers. In this way the wine avoids ending up in secondary markets that would debase their value. In addition BIB packaging responds to a specific market request for lighter packaging.
