Beginning with our ancestor’s erience in the nineteenth century… the story continues and comes to life with Grandmother Benigna as a young woman determined not to follow the country life lived by her parents, but who, during WWII, rediscovered her passion for nature and for the cultivation of grapevines. Everything began with the management of the property “moggio” where Grandmother conserved all the ungrafted native vine varieties, and many other varieties of fruit and vegetables, today company treasures. Paolo Sorrentino and his wife Angela inherited the family assets and with a lot of love for the production of Vesuvian wines, fruit and vegetable cultivations, they recovered all the varieties conserved by their ancestors. They began an expansion of the wine department in the ’90s undertaking enotourism by opening their doors to tourists and wine lovers, allowing them to taste the history of the territory and its fruits.
