Guerritore

The Irno Valley, framed by the Picentini Mountains and Irpinia, is a place steeped in history and tradition. Here, traces of a glorious past intertwine with the beauty of the surrounding nature. Centuries-old churches, ancient aqueducts, castles, and villas testify to the ancient art of winemaking practiced by past generations of Etruscan, Roman, and Norman winemakers.

In this rich and fascinating context, Marina Guerritore and Giovanni Sullutrone, accompanied by the young Svetla, passionately lead their family-owned company in Baronissi, in the heart of the valley, in the province of Salerno.

Campania

Viticulture in Campania has its roots in ancient Greek tradition, when numerous grape varieties now considered native were introduced by the Hellenics. Powdery mildew and phylloxera arrived later than elsewhere, but the damage was enormous, and the path to quality was only taken from the 1980s onwards.
Recently, Campanian wines have seen incredible success thanks to a production characterized by traditional agriculture, with a strong focus on environmental preservation and sustainability. Many of Campania's wineries are family-owned and produce high-quality wines in small quantities.

In general, Campanian viticulture is characterized by a great variety of terroirs and native varieties, which give rise to wines of great quality and personality, each with its own unique characteristics. For many years, the imposing Taurasi DOCG was the only wine to be awarded the DOCG status, but since 2003, Greco di Tufo DOCG and Fiano di Avellino DOC have also been recognized, and since 2011, Aglianico del Taburno has also been honored with this designation. In the rest of the region, there are also 15 DOC and 10 IGT wines.

Salerno

The province of Salerno is extremely interesting from a viticultural point of view: within the protected area are some of the most important wineries in Campania. Wineries that, within a few years, have gained international renown and achieved significant quality levels.

Vegetation plays a crucial role in the ecosystem. In fact, Monte Tuoro, in the highest part, is characterized by the dominant presence of beech trees, while as you descend, chestnut, oak, and mountain maple trees make their way. Another significant aspect is the presence of numerous springs that give rise to streams that mostly flow downstream. The vineyards, therefore, integrate into this environment and benefit from it.

In the province of Salerno, there are these denominations: Paestum IGT and Campania IGT.

The province of Salerno is a viticultural jewel, with some of the most important wineries in Campania.
