Feudi di San Gregorio is one of Campania's most cherished producers.
The estate, which was established in 1986, honours the customary wine varieties of the area, ranging from fragrant Fiano to robust and rustic Aglianico.
They are not only one of the biggest and most reputable producers in the region, but they also have the largest vineyards, covering more than 300 hectares.
The Cellars of Feudi di San Gregrio. Campania, Italy
Feudi di San Gregorio is now the emblematic brand of the southern Italian oenological renaissance, a drinking culture that seeks to rediscover the essence of Mediterranean flavours.
Their mission is to improve Southern Italian wines such as Aglianico, Fiano di Avellino, and Greco di Tufo, make investments in the land and the long-standing Irpinian viticultural tradition, and bring back the future of a distinctive environmental legacy.
As you ascend the hill towards Sorbo Serpico, you'll find yourself in a mystical setting with blooming rose gardens, spice gardens, and unexpected pools of water.
The long barrel room that holds the red wines is the biggest surprise, though, and can be found inside the cellar.
The idea is to redefine the cellar as a forum, a space for gathering, conversation, learning, and meditation; it's also meant to be a welcome and refreshment area as well as a laboratory of ideas and culture.
Prominent experts worked on the project: Hikaru Mori, a Japanese architect, faced the challenging task of bringing the pre-existing structures, which had grown over time, together architecturally.
The interiors and furniture were created by Massimo and Lella Vignelli, global icons of Italian design and the "authors" of the company's labels.
Irpina. A Wine Region Like No Other
The ancient Campania Apennine region of Irpinia is a unique place to grow wine because vineyards have always coexisted with fruit trees, woods, olive trees, and aromatic herbs.
It is a region that is both harsh and sweet, with strong connotations and intense sensations. Vineyards in this ancient hinterland date back to the writings of Pliny, Columella, and Strabo.
The Irpinia region has a highly diverse topography, with plains, hills, and mountains alternating with watercourses.
The region's orographic configuration establishes a wind regime that provides ample rainfall and establishes a microclimate that sets it apart from the Campania context. This microclimate includes a dense and varied vegetation, harsh and snowy winters despite their short duration, and long and mild summers.
