Falanghina Wine

for this region?

Falanghina, also called Falanghina Greco, is a variety of wine grape, Vitis vinifera, used for white wines. It is an ancient grape variety which may have provided a basis for the classical Falernian wine, and has considerable character. It is cultivated on the coast of Campania north of Naples, and frequently consumed in southern Italy along with seafood. The name for the wine appears to derive from the Latin falangae, or stakes for supporting the grapes in a vineyard.

  • Greetings, falanghina lovers! As a former resident of Campania [Licola for five years and Pozzuoli for eight years], I have a few bits of advice regarding this wine.
