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

2003, 2004 & 2005 Feudi di San Gregorio Greco di Tufo I LOVE! this wine from the Southern Italy region of Irpinia, Campania. The Italians make some great white wines and this is one of them. The grapes are of the Greco varietal and from the Tufo sub-region near Pompeii which imparts some its unique terroir to the wine. In Italy the varietal is often referred to as Lacrima Christi or, “Tears of Christ” Straw yellow color with medium to full body with citrus, honey and minerals on the nose. It bursts with mouth watering crisp acidity and tightly integrated zesty citrus and fruit flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, dried apricots and classic di Tufo volcanic minerality. I love this wine in the summer with grilled Philippine marinated pork, Thai grilled chicken or seared rosemary scallops. It is a top notch wine that has a lively personality that is summer food friendly and moderately priced. I paid around $23 at Sam's Wine.
