Discover the Wine of the Volcano

Established in 1948 on the Beautiful Slopes of Vesuvius is the Cantina del Vesuvio Winery
The Cantina del Vesuvio is located on the slopes of Vesuvius between Pompeii and the crater. Flanked by the Gulf of Naples, Sorrento Peninsula, and Capri Island, the Campania region enjoys the blends of perfect microclimate and fertile terroirs, giving rise to aromatic vines. The estate sketches over 16 hectares which comes under the National park of Vesuvius. Maurizio Russo, the present owner has been keeping the family legacy of producing a limited quantity of wines that are of the highest quality with different varieties each year.

Cantina del Vesuvio Winery Between History and legends

The slopes of Vesuvius are known for its wines for 2000 years. Lacryma Christi, a type of wine still produced in the winery has its roots in the ancient Roman period. According to historical evidence, the oenological tradition of Vesuvius dates back to centuries before Christ. According to Aristotle, in fact, the Thessalians, an ancient people of Magna Graecia, planted the first vines on the Vesuvian in the fifth century BC

Five centuries later Martial wrote: “Bacchus loved these hills more than the native hills of Nisa”

Cantina del Vesuvio grows Caprettone and Piedirosso varieties, which are among the oldest grapes cultivated, dating to before the Ancient Romans. The Piedirosso vines are trained on Guyot trellises, and the Caprettone vines are trained in the Pergola Vesuviana style, to protect them from the sun. Since 1996, They have opted for organic and sustainable methods and have never looked back again. The winery is certified organic and has been using manure, organic mineral, copper sulfate, and sulfur for various purposes at their farm. Apart from wine production, they have also been producing limited runs on their extra virgin olive oil from Vesuvius, apricot distillate, and Lacryma Christi vinegar condiment.
