It is difficult to choose the most beautiful region of italy. But for those who have been there. Campania must surely rate at or near the top of their list. Located in southwestern italy, this region has one of the most spectacular coast lines & who could argue w/ that, if you ever have seen the gulf of' napoli or the amolfi coast.
Campania's volcanic soils yield wines of uncommon eleganc & personality as expressed through the voice of an array of compelling indigenous varieties
Campania offers one of the broadest palettes of wine around, at their finest. These are among the most extraordinary wines being mode any where.
Feudi dl san gregorio is a modern expression of a century old tradition of passion & dedication to the land. Situated in the tiny village of sorbo serpico in the province of avellino, this' -highly-acclaimed winery was established in1986.
