Azienda Vinicola Sorrentino

 

THE HISTORY

A journey that has its roots in 800

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.

THE PHILOSOPHY

Go and spread the quality of a legendary wine

Ancient roots play an important role in the philosophy of the Sorrentino company but this does not prevent the Company’s ability to experiment with new projects and introduce innovations. Aglianico Pompeiano, known also as Don Paolo, is an example of rare wine balance between meticulous care in the cultivation of vines and impeccable work in the cellar. The complementary application of traditional winemaking techniques and of more modern and experimental techniques, makes the Sorrentino Company one of the most active and vibrant wineries involved in the search for the best wine quality.
The manual grape harvest in vented crates,the loving care towards the plants, the silence in which the aging process takes place in the barrels are all ancient wisdom gestures that belong to centuries past. The destemmer, filtering and re-assembly technologies, the scientific viticulture treatments,
the Sorrentino laboratory enological work are the natural evolution of a passion that anticipates the times and that makes best use of the most advanced techniques of winemaking.
