The Vines

The vines differ from each other in the shape and color of the grapes, as well as in the conformation of the grains, bunch and leaves. Further differences are due to the maturation period and the organoleptic characterization of the wines obtained from connected vines.


The Aglianico grape is considered the most important black grape variety in southern Italy. It has a thousand-year history: highly appreciated in ancient Rome, it was introduced into the Italian peninsula in 700 BC. by the Pelasgians, native people of Greece.


The oldest vine in the Avellino area is undoubtedly Greco di Tufo. Confirmation of the millenary origin of this vine is given by the discovery in Pompeii of a fresco dating back to the 1st century BC where “Greek wine” is explicitly mentioned.


Fiano is a historic vine of Greek origins. It owes its name to the ancient nickname apianum (“vine loved by bees for its sweetness”). Over time it became afianum and then fianum.


The Falanghina vine represents the base vine for many fine wines in the Campania region and is also used for the production of sparkling wines with a controlled designation of origin.

The Vineyards

We cultivate and manage all our vineyards directly. These are approximately 15 hectares located in the municipalities of Grottolella and Altavilla Irpina, in the province of Avellino; optimal sites for obtaining fine grapes. In particular, the grapes that we grow directly are part of the classic typologies of the Irpinia area: two belong to the DOCG category (Greco di Tufo and Fiano di Avellino) and two to the DOC category (Aglianico and Falanghina).

For the production of Taurasi docg, however, we purchase the grapes in the Taurasi production area, more specifically in Montemarano and Castelfranci.
