Mastroberardino is an old family estate that has been engaged in winemaking for 3 centuries. The story starts when Berardino, who received the title of “Maestro”, founded his first winery in the XVII century in the heart of the Irpinia wine region, in the town of Atripalda. The farm was officially registered in 1878 by the great-great-grandfather of the current owner, Professor Piero Mastroberardino, Cavalier Angelo.

“We were able to prove that the ancient tradition of winemaking in Campania was not interrupted, over the centuries, it changed, but did not disappear.”

  – Antonio Mastroberardino

The Mastroberardino family has always preserved and spread the values and importance of wines from Irpinia. Its mission is to protect, give importance and promote the winemaking of the Campania region. Combining tradition and innovation, Mastroberardino strives for high quality, without forgetting about ecology and the environment.

The mission of Mastroberardino to revive the history of Pompeii

Mastroberardino is the largest producer of premium wines in Campania. In addition to the fact that Mastroberardino produces some of the best wines in the region, the company is also known for its great contribution to the preservation of local (autochthonous) varieties. Antonio Mastroberardino, the grandfather of the current winemaker, Piero, is well known for his dedicated effort to revitalize Campania’s ancient native varieties of grapes. He is credited with saving the rare Fiano, Greco and Aglianico varietals after they were nearly wiped out by phylloxera in the 1930s. Moreover, in 1996, the Italian government entrusted Mastroberardino with an important mission to restore ancient vineyards near the city of Pompeii.

Villa dei Misteri – The project of restoring the ancient vineyards

The project of restoring the ancient vineyards was named Villa dei Misteri. The main task is to recreate the vineyards, varieties, techniques of cultivation and production of wines, as it was done in the Roman era in this area before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. The first vintages from historical vineyards were released in 2001. This is a kind of time-traveling machine that can transfer to the past in the era of Ancient Rome, isn’t it a miracle to try what was once served in the bars of the city of Pompeii? To understand and feel what people lived many centuries ago?

The cellar as an art Itself

An ancient cellar deserves special mention, which is a monument of antiquity and traditions of a centuries-old family. Since its vaults were decorated with paintings by Raffaele De Rosa, Maria Mikotzy and others, these creations evoke ancient associations, smoothly returning to those times.

The basements are as an art gallery, with frescoed vaulted ceilings. You can see Bacchus organizes joyful mystical celebrations, complete with wine drinking; the Satyr slyly winks and offers out a cup filled with ruby drink; nymphs braided into vines dance among barrels and barricades.
