the territory

Irpinia is a fertile land, a land of water and wine, daughter of the Wolf, proud of its own traditions and history. Proud as we are ourselves of this land, our land, where we decided to carry on the family business. Irpinia is a cold land, the face of a different southern Italy. An intertwining of mountains and hills crossed by rivers and creeks that make this piece of southern Apennines a unique and inimitable place to grow the vine.

Each bottle
is the story
of a love story

Incessant river flows
outlining the valleys, defining the flavours.

The Classics line of Villa Raiano is a tribute of gratitude to our land, we use the term “Classic” because according to our productive tradition, here in Irpinia, it was common to produce wines with grapes coming from vines located in different municipalities of the different production areas. In them we look for the most suitable balance, combining grapes from vineyards positioned in different areas.

A single territory,
many different sips

Variety of altitudes, microclimate, soil: each bottle is the story of a unique and inimitable history. Irpinia is a land without a logical thread between exposures and altitudes that continuously vary following the profile of hills and mountains that climb up to 1800 m a.s.l. A thread that reconnets to the flavour profile of our white and red DOCG wines which acquire different connotations from vine to vine telling the uniqueness and the various traits of our territory.
