Luca and Carolina first met in 2004 when she was a graphic designer (Carolina Roggero is responsible for the labels)  and he was an oenologist.  Luca’s family has a long history in the Roero, with their family name first being noted on a map from 1749 that lists the name of a valley in the heart of the Roero as Valle Faccenda.  This is where Luca’s family has lived for hundreds of years and where his family still resides.  When he was able to reclaim an expired grape contract for his family’s vines, they started Valfaccenda.  Immediately they set to converting the vines to certified organic viticulture and renovating the century old family farmhouse.

“We practice organics for ourselves and for our land expression. It’s important for us to work in a manner that if our children want to carry on the work, they can” says Luca.

 They have the iconoclastic mindset where everything they are doing is part of a vision for what the wines of the Roero can and should be- there’s no imitation of the famous surrounding regions- just innovation that is showing exactly what is possible in the Roero.  In their own words

When taking a break from winemaking you can find Luca Faccenda on his half pipe at the winery.   

100% Grignolino. In 2020, Valfaccenda finally had enough time and resources as they’ve grown as a winery to take on a new little side project about which Luca Roggero has been curious for a long time: the terroir of new appellation for the duo: in this case, Monferrato. This is Grignolino from Monferrato, a native Piemontese variety which doesn’t occur in the sandy soils of their home Roero. Sourced from an organic grower of a vineyard of 25 year-old vines who’s a friend to the family, 

Bis-esto means “The day that is added to the year, the day that fixes the error, the day that sometimes exists”.

more structure than most Grignolino (which is typically a fresh, light and chillable red), this will appeal to fans of Nebbiolo. pale red color, medium bodied, good grip, elegant red fruit, black pepper, herbs, dusty minerality. decant for 1 hour.
