Seated at a table on a grassy terrace, you toast the day with a jaunty rosé or an elegant white. Below you, the vineyard sinks out of sight into the distant valley. On the horizon, the last rays of the sun bring a golden shimmering to the distant mountains. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
Centuries ago, in the Cottian Alps west of Torino, Italy and in the Western Piedmont of Italy, the Waldensians learned the craft of creating great wines. One reason that Historic Valdese was favored by the Waldensian settlers is the terrain, climate and solk composition here was similar to their homes in Italy. Today, these wine-making skills are preserved by Waldensian Heritage Wines, located a couple of miles north of downtown Valdese. Built of local field rock and timbers, the Waldensian Heritage Winery opened in 1930. Visitors can witness processes that reflect a combined 250 years experience in wine making.
