Cupramontana rises from the very heart of the Marche Region, on one of the sun-kissed green hills lining the right-hand bank of the Esino river. This is the ancient and noble homeland of Verdicchio. It is also the site where four generations ago the Bonci family started their production and sale of wines. It all began with Domenico Bonci, in the first few years of the last century. As well as developing his own production through an accurate selection of producers and associated products carried out employing the wisdom of a true connoisseur, his vision also extended to reserving the best batches for the many transalpine visitors who displayed an interest in these fruits of the earth processed by such fine craftsmanship.
The Vallerosa Bonci Farm currently owns thirty hectares of land, twenty-six of which devoted to vineyards specifically dedicated to the production of the Protected Designation of Origin Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi Classico. The vineyards are located at an average altitude of 450 metres above sea level, in the quarters most consecrated to excellence: San Michele, Manciano, Torre, Carpaneto, Alvareto and Pietrone. The specific micro-climate, the grape selection process and the long-established traditional wisdom of wine-making now espousing the most up-to-date protocols all concur to place the Vallerosa Bonci Winery at the forefront in the production of wine and sparkling wine.
