The Stunning Geographic Location of the Winery
The winery is located in the province of Reggio Calabria, at the end of Italy’s boot, between the seaside and mountains. The land is rich in flavors and colors. A defining characteristic of the Tyrrhenian coastal area is the terraces built on the hills overhanging the sea. The centuries-old stone walls run the length of the 20 km stretch of Reggio Calabria’s Costa Viola. These walls are estimated to be about 4,000 km in total of walls.
Casa Vinicola Criserà obtained national and international awards over the years, especially with IGT Calabria Nerone di Calabria, the top of their production, and IGT Costa Viola Armacia, the pride of the winery.
