The Vineyards and the Philosophy

Over the years, the winery has recovered many abandoned lands and replanted them with grapes. Today, the company vineyards area includes 10.5 hectares in the municipalities of Lacco Ameno, Forio and Serrara Fontana divided into 8 estates. The vineyards’ altitudes ranges from 250 metres above sea level in Lacco Ameno to 450 metres above sea level in Sant’Angelo, in the Municipality of Serrara Fontana. With a density of 4.500-5.000 per hectare and pruning by the Guyot system, they produce 70 hectolitres per hectare for the White Wines and 55 hectolitres per hectare for the Red Wines. The total production is 100.000 bottles per year. The company definitely focuses on indigenous and regional varieties of grapes: Forastera, Biancolella, Fiano and Falanghina for the white wines, and Piedirosso, Aglianico and Montepulciano for the red wines.

Their  viticulture is described as heroic because the vineyards are located in small lots of land, and most of the operations in the vineyards are carried out manually. The harvest starts in the first decade of September and ends in the third decade of October.
