What to expect
We will welcome you for a guided tour inside the four hectares of our winery among history, vineyards and elegant facilities.
Agronomic studies are now in progress on our soil, in order to introduce a company “zoning” to be reflected in our future wines. For this reason, we have built our own small wine cellar with small steel silos, so that we can age the wine from the individual plots separately.
The food and wine tour consists in the following stages: we will visit the vineyards, the historical structures – including a necropolis dating back to 79 AD and a 18th century farmhouse where amphora winemaking is currently under way – and the wine cellar.
We will end our visit in the small bistro inside the winery, where you will taste a menu inspired by Ancient Roman cuisine, paired with our fine wines.

The Food Expert:
Our winery, located a few steps from the Archaeological Site of Pompeii, is the result of the will of the founder and his dream to create a company that produces wine as an expression of the history and terroir of these volcanic lands. History is our future: between experimental vineyards and amphora winemaking, our winery has a forward-looking approach, but with roots in the past. The winery houses a resort and a bistro, where the guests can enjoy a sensory experience to discover our wines, the Pompeiano IGT and the Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio DOC.

Our winery, located a few steps from the Archaeological Site of Pompeii, is the result of the will of the founder and his dream to create a company that produces wine as an expression of the history and terroir of these volcanic lands.A territory characterised for millennia by the presence of a volcano, the Vesuvius, which has represented and represents an important element for all human activities in the area. The Vesuvius, in fact, the only active volcano in continental Europe, has made the soils particularly interesting for agricultural activities. The volcanic soils are rich in ashes and lapilli, potassium and micro elements. These characteristics, together with the climatic regulation of the nearby Tyrrhenian Sea, give the wines unique minerality, freshness and complexity, which have made the wine from Campania famous all over the world.History is our future: between experimental vineyards and amphora winemaking, our winery has a forward-looking approach, but with roots in the past.The winery houses a resort and a bistro, where the guests can enjoy a sensory experience to discover our wines, the Pompeiano IGT and the Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio DOC.
