Intense and lucid ruby red. On the nose, it recalls wild black fruit, licorice and the underbrush. In the mouth, it is balanced with a finish that is reminiscent of fresh fruit, ending with a delicate balsamic note.-Winemaker Notes

Feudi di San Gregorio was established in 1986 in Sorbo Serpico, a tiny village in Campanias Irpinia region, by the Capaldo and Ercolino families. Following an earthquake in 1980 that caused large destruction, the family wanted to assist in the towns reconstruction by investing in the community and its wine culture. Irpinia is known for having many different climates, soils, and hills that contribute to a large diversity within the grapes. The winery has many vineyards, with each of the vineyard producing different expressions of the grapes, and the winery focuses on interpreting all the variables to understand which grapes are best suited for each wine. These wines showcase a sense of place and the versatility of the indigenous varietals of Irpinia and the region of Campania. Feudi di San Gregorio has partnered and invested in many research projects to develop the local varietals with a great focus on sustainability. The winery became a Benefit Company in May 2021 with the aim of safeguarding and promoting the natural environment and cultural heritage of the Irpinian territory. They are committed to local and global sustainability with the use of solar energy, zero carbon footprint corks, water recycling and use of sustainable agriculture in the vineyards. In August 2021, Feudi di San Gregorio obtained the Equalitas Certification in Italy, promoting sustainability in the wine industry and offering the best guarantee for consumers. Finally, in June 2022, Feudi di San Gregorio achieved B-Corp status allowing the winery to be a positive force for the environment and community by creating an evolving relationship with suppliers and customers. The certification identifies companies that operate in accordance with the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency, and responsibility, to generate a positive impact on their employees the community and the environment.
Today, Chairman Antonio Capaldo carries on the tradition to nurture this regions unique, indigenous varietals through in-depth knowledge of the terroir ultimately shaping the future of the wine region. The estate has 740+ acres of vineyards, made up of over 800 plots with varying altitudes and exposure. Feudi di San Gregorio is known for their ancient vines, some up to 200 years old, using the ancient pergola training system, which survived the phylloxera spread of 1910, allowing Irpinia to become a distinct and treasured wine growing region in Italy.
In 2001, the Capaldo family decided to embark on the project of building a new winery: a one-of-a-kind space that combines their taste for tradition with their contemporary vision. For such a multi-faceted and complex project, the family worked with internationally acclaimed Japanese architect Hikaru Mori. Hikaru was entrusted with the difficult task of giving architectural unity to the pre-existent structures that had been developed over the years.
The new winery was inaugurated in 2004, reflecting Feudi di San Gregorios wish to blend its long-standing tradition with a futuristic architectural project. The structure has minimal environmental impact and vast gardens. At the center of the winery is the Marenn Restaurant (Michelin Star since 2009) a restaurant dedicated to a contemporary reinterpretation of the typical local cuisine of Campania and Irpinia. The winery calls it "a gastronomic laboratory" where local Irpinian ingredients are carefully sourced by their Chef, Roberto Allocca. The Marenn was the name of the frugal, but no less important, meal consumed by workers in the fields, often eaten outdoors and followed by a good glass of wine.-Winery Notes
