In the southern part of Italy lies the more obscure wine producing region of Campania where the Feudi di San Gregorio estate resides. This exciting and dynamic house has a focus on innovation and a sharp eye on quality. The estate has some of the oldest vineyards in all of Italy with records showing wine being made in this part of the Irpinia region as early as 590 AD. Spread out over lush and gentle hills in Sorbo Serpico, an hour from Naples and Mount Vesuvius, its unique volcanic, sandstone and marly soils lends to great wines with the telltale aromas of cherry, cinnamon, aniseed, graphite and ash.

Founded by the husband and wife team of Enzo Ercolino and Mirella Capaldo in the mid 1980’s, the estate has gone from strength to strength due to their excelelent quality wines made from indigenous grapes Fiano, Aglianico and Greco di Tufo.

Our thanks also to Daniel Costa of Red Star who is from Campania and will be doing local fare from the region for this tasting. Only 18 seats available for this special event.
