The winery is one with the family home: built below it, it benefits from the specificity of the volcanic rock of the last great eruption of Vesuvius, allowing a temperature and humidity that is naturally favorable for winemaking.

In this place, you can get to the heart of production, discover its secrets, follow step by step the slow and meticulous processes that lead from the grape to the wine ready for the bottle.

Here, day after day, this cycle is renewed, skilfully mixing the tradition of “making” acquired over time and the most advanced production technologies, such as winemaking systems with steel tanks, large French oak barrels and tonneaux.

The structure is the nerve center of the company activity, in perfect dialogue with the vineyards surrounding the house and the space dedicated to welcoming wine lovers.
