Campania and its capital city Naples are more than pizza Margherita; the wine here goes back to before the Roman Empire took hold of the blue Naples Bay. Wine here is part of everyone’s life, and no meal is complete without a glass of red or white.
Amongst the most cherished producers in Campania, you’ll find Feudi San Gregorio. Founded in 1986, the estate celebrates the region’s traditional wine styles, from rustic and bold Aglianico to fragrant Fiano. With over 300 hectares of vines, Feudi San Gregorio is not only one of the most respected and quality-minded producers in the area, but also one of the largest.
Irpinia is a Campanian region stretching up the Apennine foothills. The rolling hills are home to orchards, olive trees and autochthonous grapevines, all going back thousands of years. The microclimate is ideal for quality winemaking; the summers are long and mild, and the winters short and cold. The surrounding mountains channel cooling breezes that keep the grapes vibrant as they ripen to perfection.
Feudi San Gregorio is a worthy ambassador for such noble land, but it’s also a protector of the region’s customs and grapes. Varieties are only known to the region abound and are a source of extraordinary wine that matches beautifully with Campania’s festive food.
Amongst the most celebrated wines in San Gregorio’s extensive catalogue, you’ll find a couple of bold and structured Aglianico wines, including the prestigious Aglianico del Vulture DOCG. White grapes are represented by the famous trio: Falanghina, Fiano and Greco. Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo are world-renowned wine styles with delightful bouquets and textural palates with no equal.
Campania’s wine is superb and stands out over the already impressive Italian wine repertoire. In Feudi San Gregorio’s hands, these traditional styles are taken to another level of quality and purity. They’re contemplative wines that, at the same time, are incredibly easy to enjoy!
