The name Italy, originally Osca extended to Campania in the third century B.C.: Campania, a land rich in history, art and tradition of ancient Samnite origin, it was inhabited in the eighth century B.C. by the Greeks, that their forefathers, the Hellenes, had inherited the cult of Dionysus and the Bacchae and his followers worship  through which the world would have known the wine.  Later became the Etruscan civilization splendid traces of which were found in Capua and Pompeii were then transformed into the territory of the Roman Empire in the first century B.C.: the Romans were the inventors of the graft.  Called “Campania Felix” for the extraordinary fertility of the soil the land was therefore devoted to agriculture, since its ancient origins, when it already produced the famous “Wines of the emperors”.

Today, thanks to the work of man and the equally mild climate throughout the year with winters never too cold and summers never too hot, the clay plain extending between the coast and the mountain ranges of the Apennines, is transformed in the two districts of Irpinia and Sannio on sides of the rolling hills showing off her impressive vineyards.
