In Torre le Nocelle, a small little town in the heart of Irpinia, there has been for over a century the Farm : "I Capitani" belonging to the Cefalo family.
The field was formerly a game reserve of the Prince of the Leonessa , Lord of Montemiletto,and bought in the last twenties by the Cefalo family. Due to its particular and advantageous position that dominates the valley of the river Calore and facing the famed Taurasi, the field was naturally organized to viticulture, greatest pride of these lands.
The founder of the Farm was the grandfather Ciriaco, who had always been fond of the land and its fruits, and he himself obstinately and sweating went on working on the farm, changing the age-old woods in marvellous vineyard. He continued cultivating and looking on the farm facing all the difficulties and never gave up even when the filossera attacked the vineyard.
The vineyard was completely reinstalled, the Farm re- flowered and gained its previous splendour thanks to the work that the numerous sons of the founder had dedicated for over forty years.
Nowadays Ciriaco,the grandson, has continued to work on the original project, bringing the ancient Farm to its former splendour.
The Farm is situated in the district of Torre le Nocelle (Avellino), one of the 16 districts of the area of adoption for the production of the Taurasi (Docg wine) from the autochthonous Aglianico species of grapevine.
In the district Bosco Faiano, the farm owns 12 hectares of hills well exposed and exclusively cultivated with vineyard and olive grove.
In the middle of the old field nowadays you can find a modern and complex farm . The latter is more and more interested in producing high quality wine and extra virgin olive oil, and also to give a nice and warmth rural hospitality.
The main aim of the Farm has ever since been to promote the image of the Green Irpinia, land of tradition and culture.
