In Vineyard: The Malbech is a vine that finds in our territory the ideal conditions to express its potential of great persistence and pleasant fruit. Only the best grapes are selected. This selection allows to better express the characteristics of the grape.

In Cellar: We vinify it in purity to enhance its characteristics and make it exclusive. Maceration lasts for 15-20 days; it follows alcoholic fermentation in steel.

The passion and love for vine and wine comes from father Valentino, who used to follow his grandfather, since he was a child, in the vineyards and in the cellar.

Passion, research, dedication and respect for traditions are the main values that have been guiding his philosophy since he created his own cellar. He was strongly determined to enhance the territorial typicalness of our Lison-Pramaggiore area, by producing excellent wines.

Such values have naturally been transmitted to the children, staying by his side and creating with him this fantastic reality that is now passionately involving also their own children.

Paladin wines are the product of lands rich in natural elements, history, traditions and ancient cultures. It’s the area that extends between Veneto and Friuli regions, along the Postumia road, built by the Roman Consul Postumio Albino in the II century A.D. in order to join by land the two major Roman ports of north Italy, Genua and Aquileia; in this land different cultures have been succeeding and consolidating in things and people.

The vineyards are located in this important place, whose clay-limestone soil, the result of the last glaciation, is particularly suitable to the growing of international vines, because its minerals give the grapes a marked trait of typicalness.

Paladin pursues everyday an ambitious mission: to be guided by the principle of sustainability in every field in which it operates, applying Casa Paladin 4V Project. Respect for the Vine, safeguarding the Ecosystem, producing sustainable Wine and protecting Life: these are the actions implemented on a daily basis to make a positive contribution to the system that surrounds us, starting from the production toreaching the social sphere. In 2021 Paladin has achieved the EQUALITAS Certification, a standard that certifies the sustainability of wine by examining 3 differentareas: social, environmental and economic.
