THE VINEYARD: Bought in the late twenties by the Cefalo family, the vineyard has a particular and advantageous position in Irpinia. It dominates the valley of the river Calore and faces the famed Taurasi, and was naturally turned into a vineyard. It is now the greatest pride of these lands.
THE ESTATE: In Torre le Nocelle, a small town in the heart of Irpinia, the Cefalo family has been farming and cultivating the land for over a century. The field was formerly a game reserve for the Prince of the Leonessa, Lord of Montemiletto. The founder of the farm was the grandfather, Ciriaco, who had always been fond of the land and its fruits. After Phylloxera attacked the vineyard, everything was replanted and through hard work and dedication the vineyard gained its previous splendour thanks to the efforts of the numerous sons of Ciriaco over forty years. In addition to producing fine wines, the estate also cultivates olive groves for the production of their own olive oils. Today, Ciriaco, the grandson, has continued to dedicate himself to maintaining the legacy of the ancient vineyard.
