Walden Selections Represents AR.PE.PE. in Washington State

Walden Selections is proud to partner with Tellitalia Imports to bring the wines of Ar.Pe.Pe. to Washington State.

Ar.Pe.Pe. is the acronym used by Arturo Pelizzatti Perego for the family winery that he re-established in Sondrio in 1984. The Nebbiolo grape, known locally as Chiavennasca, is the focus of this region and Ar.Pe.Pe. is arguably its greatest master.

The next generation - Emanuele, Guido and Isabella now direct the winery. According to Emanuele Pelizzatti, "It’s not about structure or concentration. It’s about minerality and finesse. Ours is a patrimony of elegance." In addition to a youthful Rosso di Valtellina, eight other red wines are made based on the quality of each vintage, released four to eight years after harvest.

Walden Selections Partners with Maximilien Selections

Walden Selections is proud to represent Maximilien Selections in Washington State. Maximilien Selections is a boutique import company based in the Loire Valley and owned by Laurent Bonnois.  The wines in his portfolio each reflect their own sense of place, as Laurent explains:

"All the best wines are already in the U.S. market. So, my goal is to find wines from unknown regions and/or new talents. They should taste where they're from. They should be made with an area’s historical grape varietals and be made by small family producers. The price is also important to me, as wine should be accessible to everyone, not just for special occasions.”
