The Vineyards

In the national park of Pollino vineyards put on the scents of this amazing territory.

Our vineyards are located in the territory of Saracena, in the Rinni district 350 m above sea level, with such exposure that it receives the sun’s rays from the sunrise to the sunset. To the East- South East they face the Sibari plain and the Ionian sea, catching the mild currents, while to the North they are protected from the cold winds of the Pollino chain.

All of this creates a microclimate with a considerable temperature range that allows the grapes to reach a high confluence of scents. In our vineyards we grow local grapes such as Magliocco dolce, Moscatello di Saracena, Guarnaccia bianca, Malvasia, Mantonico and “Adduroca”, a dialect word that means “perfumed, scented”.

We use the spurred cordon rearing system with a planting distance of 1m x 2,20m. Ours is an organic farming with Bioagricert certification. In the last years we are saving some sapling old vineyards and we are getting a high quality type of grape, so that they’re not abandoned.
