THE SOCIETÁ AGRICOLA FAY was founded in 1973 by Sandro Fay who, starting from a small family-run wine producing business, decided to expand the estate’s activities; since 1998, Sandro has been flanked by his children Marco and Elena. The business area is 15 hectares.

We are committed to promoting single vineyards, which, due to their different soils and altitudes, produce wines with distinctive characteristics.

Valtellina, the Nebbiolo of Alps



Valtellina is the biggest mountain vineyard terraced area in Italy. The native grape variety grown here is Nebbiolo, locally called Chiavennasca. The vines are grown at an altitude between 350 and 900 metres



Our vineyards extend over 15 hectares and traditionally, our wine estate is strongly linked to the Valgella sub-zone, where most of our production is concentrated.



Valgella is the name of one of the five sub-zones of the Valtellina Superiore Docg denomination; it stretches over 137 hectares in the commune of Teglio. The name comes from “Valgel”, a dialect word describing the small streams that characterize the area.



The soil in our vineyards is mainly sandy (about 70%), silty (18%) (clay and limestone are absent), with an acid pH ranging between 4,5 and 5,5, and it has resulted from crumbled granitic formations that vary in thickness from less than one metre to a few metres.
