Description

The name of the company gets its origin from the homonymous place located in the countryside of the hamlet San Michele, between Pratola Serra and Montefalcione, where it's still possible to admire, right near one of our vineyards, a majestic megalithic monument made of three stones about five metres high and two metres wide, thrust deep into soil, one beside the other, according to a disposition denominated "menhir alignment" by archaeologists. Struck by the charme of the place, the Lucanian writer Maria Padula, also famous for her valuable painting production, set in it a brief and suggestive tale in which she told of how Silpa, a shepherd from Irpinia, would free the inhabitants of the area from the bloody fierceness of Cronopa, the Ogre.

Our family claims very ancient traditions in viticulture, and since 1993 it exploits its products by transforming them directly in the new cellar created at the company centre, where the resort to the most advanced techniques in winemaking enables to confer a special stand out to the fragrances and to the flavours of the incomparable wines of Irpinia.

Our vineyards spread over about 30 hectares and are all located on hills and greatly suitable areas, at an altitude comprised between 350 and 500 metres above the sea level, in the village districts of Pratola Serra, Montefalcione, Lapio, Prata P.U., Santa Paolina and Tufo, with a density from 2,500 to 3,500 plants per hectare. The stock-farming is by train system (vines are entwined and two metres distant from one another), the pruning/trimming system is the classic Guyot. We exclusively practise the integrated struggle, with the reduction to the minimum of fertilizers and pest killers, and with the absolute exclusion of synthetic substances. The maximum production yield is of 10,000 kg per hectare, the actual one isn't more than 6,000-7,000 per hectare.

For the passion and the tilling care we dedicate to our vineyards, and the thorough selection of the grapes, which are all wine-made in pureness and with traditional methods, we can proudly affirm that the quality of our wines, even before than in the cellar, is produced in the fields.
