Feudi di San Gregorio
The wines of Campania have over the past decade been gaining traction in the world market, but the Feudi di San Gregorio winery makes it quite clear that it is distinctly in Irpinia, within the province of Campania in the Apennine Mountains, south of Rome. The distinction, for them, is that Irpinia is very much its own terroir, with a system of winds that cause it to be a microclimate, with short, extremely cold, snowy winters, unusual for the South of Italy. Indeed, the climate is more Nordic than Italian. The soil is heavily volcanic and sandy.

For thirty years, the winery has made some of the finest Greco, Fiano and Aglianico wines, cultivated on 300 hectares of land divided into 700 parcels, all with different elevations, exposures and gradients. The winery’s research laboratory, called FeudiStudi, established by Antonio Capaldo (President of Feudi di San Gregorio) and Pierpaolo Sirch (Head of Production), has analyzed the soils of these parcels to identify their strengths and weaknesses as well as their particular flavor components. Some vines even escaped the phylloxera plague of the 19th century.
