Campania the land of red wines

Located in southern Italy, Campania is best known for the wonderful city of Naples, the amazing Amalfi Coast and the island of Capri. Although these days the wines of Campania have been gaining increasingly popularity. Among the reds the most famous are the age worthy Taurasi DOCG and Aglianico del Taburno DOCG, both based on the grape Aglianico. For whites, we have two of the most important DOCGs Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo.

Campania has a long winemaking history and some of the wines were already illustrious in ancient Rome: particularly the Falerno, which has since relaunched with a modern version (vinified in white with a Falanghina base and in red with Aglianico or Primitivo).

In the past, Pompei was one of the more predominant wine-trading locations of Campania. With the end of the Roman Empire, the viticulture started its decline, which lasted up until to the Middle Ages, and it remains one of the darkest periods for the industry. The phylloxera arrived in Campania much later than elsewhere, but devastated the vineyards and then the shift towards quality was taken in the late ‘80s.

Today’s wine market isn’t fair & just. Not just for the winemakers. Not just for you.

Now you can change that. Jump the middlemen. Handcrafted wine from cellar door to your door.

No hassle, no mark-ups, no nonsense. Just wine.
