The Mastroberardino family has been farming grapes and producing wine since the mid-18th century, dating back 10 generations, and are largely responsible for the revival and elevation of Irpinian and Campanian winemaking post WWII. Their efforts ignited a resurgence in quality red and white wine production in all of Southern Italy. Working primarily with Campania’s ancient, native varietals, Fiano, Greco, and Aglianico, Mastroberardino has resuscitated would-be extinct grapes into world class varieties.  Piero Mastroberardino, the family’s 10th generation vintner, continues his family's passion for restoration and preservation. Piero has been at the helm of the winery since the mid-nineties and has spearheaded the prestigious research and planting project, Villa dei Misteri, aimed at reconstructing the ancient vineyard of Pompeii. 

The terroir of Irpinia is well suited for viticulture, for its unique volcanic microclimate, due to Mt. Vesuvius. Native to Campania, Greco is one of the top white varietals of the region. Fermented in stainless steel, this wine is fresh and lively, and is offered here for an amazing price. This is a perfect early fall wine!
