WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
A pure Greco cultivated in Santa Paolina, in vineyards at an average altitude of 550 metres above sea level. The soil is clayey, while the training system is counter-espalier with Guyot pruning. Harvesting is manual and the grapes are picked in the second half of October. After soft crushing and destemming, vinification takes place without the use of oenological adjuvants and without interventions aimed at limiting the natural evolution of the product. Refinement in steel follows.

its sapidity and softness.
We are in the province of Avellino, in Irpinia, characterised by a great variety of landscapes, with mountains, hills, valleys and plateaus.
The territory has a strong and unique identity due to the peculiarities of the subsoil and climatic conditions. Following the powerful eruption of Vesuvius several thousand years ago, pyroclastic materials transported by strong winds settled on the Irpinia territory, creating a thick layer of volcanic materials, which consolidated over the centuries.
Today, the terroir of Irpinia is rich in mineral micronutrients.
More superficial layers are formed by stratified limestone, while the hills and valleys are made up of deposits of arenaceous and clayey materials. The soils show a well-balanced texture, free of clay, with frequent stoniness.
The Mediterranean climate exposes the area to cold, wet winters and hot summers, with large temperature ranges between day and night. The balance between climate, vine and soil is perfect. A balance that has become increasingly harmonious over the centuries, resulting in wines with supreme characteristics, characterised by aromatic complexity, a velvety, full and elegant taste, and an intense and delicate aroma.
Le Ormere is a small organic winery in Santa Paolina, a small municipality in the province of Avellino.
In 2012, Carmine Iannaccone and Fiore Cecere, two long-standing friends, driven by a common passion for wine, set up the winery 'Le Ormere'.
An evocative name, a dialect expression that recalls the great elms that reigned and still reign among the decades-old vines in the Santa Paolina wine-growing area.
The association with the elm tree - which in the past was used as a natural guardian for the growth and development of the vine - is not accidental for a company that intends to favour natural processes and produce wines that are the result of respectful management of the land and careful use of production techniques.
