Campania region

The cultivation of the vine in the southern Italian region of Campania dates to the time before the 12th century BC. It is the time in which from the north and the centre of the Italian peninsula the Etruscans, and later from the south the Greeks began to settle in this fertile territory. These peoples understood it soon, that one could produce by improving the techniques of viticulture, a fruit with very interesting properties. It was the vine from which one could win an original, delicious and intoxicating liquor.

In the following centuries followed a slow expansion of the cultivation of varieties with a high quality, so that in the Roman era, some wines of Campania were present constant on the tablets of the senators and patricians and thus found a spread throughout the whole Roman Empire. Wines from Campania were drunk from England to Mesopotamia.

As in the past, so the Mediterranean climate with the influence of the nearby sea, the protective mountains of the Apennines and nutrient rich soils of volcanic origin provide also in the presence an ideal base for winegrowing.

We have set ourselves the goal to devote special attention to wines from this region - the region of our origin. We offer you wines especially from the area around the Taburno massif and from the hinterland of Vesuvius. Especially here you will find wineries that make excellent wines but are still relatively unknown in the world.
