Situated in the tiny village of Sorbo Serpico in Campania's Irpinia region, this highly acclaimed estate was established in 1986. Along with the expert guidance of consulting enologist Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy’s most esteemed winemaking talents, Feudi di San Gregorio has emerged into the international limelight as a great success story in a region that, for many years, was locked in a virtual winemaking holding pattern. Feudi di San Gregorio has aggressively tapped into the enormous potential of Campania's unique terroir and ancient varietals by placing a thoroughly modern spin on indigenous grapes such as Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico. Feudi di San Gregorio sources its grapes from the finest vineyards set in the rolling hills of the Irpinia region, located in close proximity to Mount Vesuvius. The volcano's legendary eruptions have laden the sandstone and marl soil with mineral-rich deposits of volcanic ash, forming a unique composition that imparts highly distinctive aromas and flavors in the grapes. Recognizing that a keen understanding of climatic conditions is indispensable to the successful cultivation of vines, Feudi di San Gregorio has invested extensively in state-of-the-art winemaking technology. Each of the estate's vineyards is equipped with a solar-powered meteorological station that gathers data continuously. By closely monitoring the environment, the estate is actively practicing eco-compatible viticulture, thereby reducing the need for artificial methods to an absolute minimum. Further embracing the benefits of technology, construction was recently completed on a modernized cellaring facility. A $20-million investment, it has the capacity to house an impressive 5,000 barrels. Read less

Wild aromas of honeycomb, flowers and melons. Full-bodied and round, with loads of fruit and a honey, melon and rose water aftertaste. One of Italy's great values.

Lovely aromas of rhubarb and limes follow through to a medium body, with a light licorice and lemon finish. Bright and yummy. This is always a very good value. Drink now.

Imagine swaying on a hammock between two leaning palms somewhere off on a south sea island, while sipping a cool glass of Falanghina, as warm tropical breezes of papaya, banana, pineapple and coconut bathe sunlit, citric flavors.

Springtime, blossoming flowers and ripe fruit: not only does this describe the season, but this fresh white wine from Italy as well. Luscious, fully rounded pear, melon and honey flavors lead into a delightfully smooth and supple finish showing relatively low acid levels. Sure to please any crowd.

Aromatic nose of honeysuckle, white pepper, licorice and mint. Juicy and vibrant, wit intense flavors of peach, pear, pineapple and spice. Very fresh, shapely wine with good lift and a spicy finish.
