Traditional Winemaking

The Greco di Tufo, Fiano, Falanghina, and Aglianico vineyards, from where the wineswe produce come from, liebetween the regions of Irpinia and Sannio, in the area between Abellinum and Beneventum, one of the old Roman colonies.

This area was a property of The Gran Conti de Capua, whoowned Barba, Ceppaloni, Terranova d’Arpaise (BN-Benevento), Altavilla, Chianchetelle, Grottolella, and Prata di Principato Ultra (AV-Avellino).

Andrea was one of those land lords who, during the Middle Age, were very powerful thanks to their wealthy properties. The sovereign gave him many favours, including the honour to marry his disowned ex-wife, the beautiful Costanza di Chiaromonte, with a three-thousand ducati dowry. In the same circumstances, the De Capuas also received some of the best lands of the kingdom, which are the same are aswherewe produce Greco di Tufo today.
