Valdarno di Sopra DOC and Consorzio di Tutela Valdarno di Sopra DOC were established thanks to the will of a small group of founding members, determined to support and enhance their wines through shared actions of dissemination and protection. Thanks to this initiative, joined by the most renowned companies of our territory and by those who decided to put quality viticulture at the center of their work, the Ministry recognized the Valdarno di Sopra DOC designation of origin in 2011. Valdarno di Sopra DOC is characterized by two founding elements: The awareness of the importance of the territory for the characteristics of the wine, with the consequent choice to enhance, protect and always interpret it in the best possible way, and the belief that only great quality can allow our wines to stand out in a global market with an extremely wide offer.
The current Board of Directors was elected on 22 February 2022 and will remain in office until 21 February 2027.

The Consortium has started the procedure for requesting the Ministry for some amendments to the product specification, such as the elimination of sub-zones, the inclusion of some native vines and an update of the ampelographic bases of some types. Besides, the proposed amendments to the product specification also includes the broadening of the production area, envisaging not only Valdarno di Sopra of the province of Arezzo but also the part falling under the province of Florence, a necessary recognition to thus reconstitute the historical and geographical integrity of our wine growing territory.
