Feudi di San Gregorio: a workshop of ideas


The original core of the vineyards Feudi di San Gregorio, established in 1986, is located in the area of Sorbo Serpico, where there is the cellar. Over time, the vineyards of Tufo, Taurasi, and Santa Paolina joined. They are situated on hills between 350 and 700 metres above sea level. Feudi di San Gregorio aims at safeguarding this unique genetic heritage, immediately devoting itself to the recovery of some authentic valuable productions as well as to the identification of a quality standard that meets the most rigorous market’s requirements. It wants to safeguard tradition by searching for all the potential it can offer; enhance such vines of southern Italy as ‘Aglianico’, ‘Fiano di Avellino’, and ‘Greco di Tufo’; invest in the land and in the centuries-old tradition of viticulture of Irpinia, offering a new future to a unique environmental heritage.

Over time, to the native grapes some typical varieties of the neighbouring areas, such as ‘Falanghina’ and ‘Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio’, have joined. But the spirit of research did not concern just the enhancement of the local heritage. The spirit behind Feudi di San Gregorio led the Company to look outside of its original borders. Hence its ‘landing’ at Vulture, in Basilicata, and in the area of Manduria, in Puglia. In these places it wants to retrace its experience, more and more in the absolute respect for the peculiarities of the new environment.
