What to expect
We will welcome you in the winery for a walk in our vineyard on the hills of Castelfranci, a town famous for the production of excellent Campania wines.
You will learn a lot of curiosities about the wine from Campania that we produce in this area, so particularly suited to viticulture. In Castelfranci, wine is a word that rhymes above all with the legendary Taurasi. This wine from Campania is a red wine produced on calcareous clay soil on a yellow marl base with good organic substance. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 500 – 700 metres above sea level and the wine harvest of 100% Aglianico grapes takes place in the first ten days of November.
Taurasi is a ruby red wine from Campania with garnet highlights. During the wine tasting, it offers generous fruity hints of cherry and black cherry. It pairs well with main courses with game, elaborate dishes such as roast lamb with potatoes or stracotto al Taurasi. It is also a traditional pairing with lasagna alla napoletana.
We will taste the wine directly in the wine cellar and you will spend a day together with the wine maker and the cellarman. You will learn the wine growing techniques and the winemaking processes used in the winery.

Lacryma Christi doc: history and legend
The name Lacryma Christi has its roots in a number of legends. The most famous is that of Lucifer, who took with him a piece of heaven when he was cast out. When Christ saw the Gulf of Naples in Italy, he recognized it as this stolen piece and wept over the loss; it is said that vines of Lacryma Christi sprang miraculously from the earth where his tears fell.
