Valle Reale is literally a valley in the middle of these mountains, placed in the spot where the three parks intersect. Considering these characteristics, Valle Reale was a challenging project in terms of viticulture development. Even though Abruzzo is located in the center-south of Italy, summers and winters here represent both extremes: the heat that is typical of these latitudes of Italy is in sharp contrast with the rigid winter temperatures and the snows that blanket the highest mountain peaks and cover the upland for days on end.
Wisely run by Leonardo Pizzolo, Valle Reale is a farm consisting of vineyards and vegetable gardens, where mountain agriculture is practiced daily, always with respect for the delicate natural balance that surrounds it and the old traditions that are still handed down.
The vineyards grow along a plain that is 350 m above sea level, facing southeast to enjoy the rays of the sun that rises over the Majella National Park and the Morrone Mountains. The total of 46 hectares are certified organic for more than half of the surface area, while the remaining area is undergoing conversion to organic methods.
