its sapidity and softness.
We are in the province of Avellino, in Irpinia, characterized by a great variety of landscapes, with mountains, hills, valleys and plateaus.
The territory has a strong and unique identity in the world due to the peculiarities of the subsoil and the climatic conditions. Following the powerful eruption of Vesuvius several thousand years ago, pyroclastic materials transported by strong winds settled on the territory of Irpinia, giving life to a thick layer of volcanic materials, which consolidated over the centuries.
Today, the terroir of Irpinia has a great wealth of mineral micronutrients.
More superficial layers are formed by stratified limestones, while the hills and valleys are made up of deposits of arenaceous and clayey materials. The soils show a well-balanced texture, without clay, with frequent stoniness.
The Mediterranean climate exposes the area to cold, wet winters and hot summers, with large temperature variations between day and night. The balance between climate, vine and soil is perfect. A balance that has become increasingly harmonious over the centuries, giving life to wines with supreme characteristics, which are characterized by aromatic complexity, a velvety, full and elegant taste, an intense and delicate aroma.
WINERYThe Ferrara family began producing wine under its own brand in 1860 thanks to the foresight of Benito and his wife Michelina, in the hills of San Paolo di Tufo, in the province of Avellino.
Today it is her daughter Gabriella Ferrara, together with her husband Sergio and her two sons, who carry on the passion of her father, in 23 hectares of vineyards.
We are in the heart of Irpinia. The land enjoys an ideal position, between 450 and 600 m above sea level, with southern exposure, hilly position and a medium-textured texture.
The work of this small winery is all based on the extreme care of the vineyards and the work in the cellar, for the production of wines of the highest quality.
