The secrets behind our recipes

A walk through the vineyards, a visit to the winery and a tour of our organic garden at the foot of the mountain to select seasonal ingredients (when it is possible): our cooking lessons are a tasty journey of discovery through the scents, flavours and colours of Mount Vesuvius.

After the lesson, you will gather at the table to toast with our Lacryma Christi (5 labels) and enjoy the fruits of your labours.

The menu:

We will begin with a spumante rosè welcome aperitif, served with wood fired baked bread, our organic olive oil and our own recipe of a condiment of sweet vinegar.

You will prepare:

  • Ravioli alla caprese – one of the most traditional specialities from Capri made with Piennolo tomatoes.
  • Parmigiana alla napoletana – the aubergine parmigiana is a classic of the Neapolitan cuisine.
  • Torta di mandorle al limone – a sweet almond cake flavoured with local Sorrento lemons from the Sorrentine Peninsula and served with our Vesuvius apricot liqueur.

The Food Expert: the winery was founded in 1948 in Trecase, on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. We have been using organic methods since 1996, fertilizing this sandy, volcanic soil exclusively with organic products and treating the vines only with copper sulphate and sulphur. Our wines do not contain sulphites. Our varieties, the Caprettone, the Piedirosso and the Aglianico, are among the oldest grapes cultivated in the history, even before the Ancient Romans (5th century BC).

It was 1948, Italy was recovering from the Second World War and my father decided to found a small winery in Trecase, on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius.

At that time, wine was transported to Naples by horse-drawn wagons, where small rural producers sold their wines to larger merchants, who then supplied shops and restaurants around the city.

I began working at a young age in the family business.

Eighteen years ago the turning point: I decided to open the doors of my winery to tourists for visits and tastings, to invest in improving the quality of my wines and to limit distribution only to our winery shop or through the website.

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.
