the cellar

Villa Raiano was born in 1996 in the old oil mill factories of the Basso family, owners of the company in the Raiano hamlet of the municipality of Serino (AV).
The current cellar, built in 2009 on top of a hill in San Michele di Serino (AV), is the core of our company. A modern structure, perfectly integrated into the immediate environment, surrounded by vineyards and chestnut woods. From the panoramic terrace, with a view, you can follow the entire Sabato River valley, from its source, at the foot of Monte Terminio, to the point where it leaves the province of Avellino in Altavilla Irpina.

The wines

the classic line

The Classic line of Villa Raiano is a tribute of gratitude to our land. We use the word “Classic” because in the Irpinia productive tradition it was used to produce wines with grapes from vineyards located in different municipalities of the different production areas. In them, we try to find the right balance between the different characteristics of the grapes.

the vines

Different altitudes, microclimates, soils: each bottle is the narration of a unique and inimitable story. Irpinia is a land without a logical thread between exposures and altitudes that vary continuously following the profile of the hills and mountains that climb up to 1800 meters above sea level. This thread is reconnected in the organoleptic specificities of our DOCG wines, of the white and red grapes that take on different connotations, from vineyard to vineyard, telling the uniqueness of our territory.

The vineyards

The vineyards

Villa Raiano owns 27 hectares of vineyards, maintained following organic methods, certified since 2011, in all the Denominations of Origin of the province of Avellino. Within these denominations, we’ve been looking for vineyards that could have given us qualitatively high but very different results. We believe, indeed, that the real strength of this land is its difference and this is the characteristic we try to enhance in our productions.


Seven hectares in Altavilla Irpina in the upper part of the Ponte dei Santi hamlet, planted in 2005 at 4500 plants per hectare at 550 meters above sea level. Two hectares, planted in 2009, are cultivated in Montefusco in the Pioppo dei Cappuccini district with a planting pattern of 4500 plants per hectare at 500 meters above sea level, conducted in guyot on sandy soils resting on tuff-stone marl.


Nine hectares, in a single body, planted in 2004, are cultivated in Castelfranci, in the Baiano district, at 550 meters above sea level, with a South-East exposure, guyot systems and a planting density of 5000 plants per hectare on a clayey and calcareous soil with a good presence of volcanic ash and skeleton.
One hectare, in the lowest area of the Baiano district in Castelfranci, led to “pergola avellinese” (starseta is the local word for this), about 75 years old with a planting pattern of 2500 plants per hectare.


Three hectares are cultivated in Montefredane: they are located in the Alimata district, with exposure to the East, at 450 meters above sea level, planted in 1995 with a system of 4000 plants per hectare trained according to the Guyot system on very tenacious clayey soils. Four hectares are cultivated in San Michele di Serino, in the Bosco Satrano district. The vineyards divided into various plots surround our cellar with a planting density of 4500 plants per hectare built in 2008, conducted according to the Guyot system, on medium-compact clayey soils with a good presence of skeleton. Two hectares, planted in 1990, are cultivated in the town of Lapio: one hectare in Contrada Arianiello, facing North-East, cultivated according to the Guyot system on medium-textured soils of clay and volcanic ash; one hectare in the Campore district, with southern exposure, also conducted according to the guyot system.

Irpinia is our land and in the cellar of Villa Raiano we keep its heart. Each tour is for at least of two people and includes a tasting of four wines, for a duration of 90 minutes. The cost per person is 15 euros.
