What to expect
We will start the visit at our winery with a real lunch in Gragnano (European Capital City of Pasta), in the province of Naples. A selection of traditional Campania foods will be paired with a selection of our wines (Lacryma Christi Red, White and Rosato wines, Gragnano wine and Falanghina Spumante).
You will taste our famous Gragnano DOC wine, a wine from Campania that comes from sandy volcanic soil, with a Guoyot training system at an altitude of about 800 metres above sea level and an alcohol content of 12%. The Gragnano wine has a ruby red colour, fruity scents with strong notes of red fruits and floral hints of violets. It pairs perfectly with meat, cold cuts, cheese, soups and the typical Neapolitan pizza. It is a sparkling wine, also excellent for aperitifs.
After the lunch with Gragnano wine, we will take a journey through history together. You will visit Villa Arianna and Villa San Marco, two important Roman villas located in the Archaeological Area of Stabiae, from where you can enjoy a splendid view over the Gulf of Castellammare di Stabia, and where, staying on the subject, you will taste something from another era. Compared to the archaeological area of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the Stabiae excavations are smaller in size, but offer the chance to see a different aspect of the lifestyle of the ancient Romans.

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.
