The grapes are softly pressed and fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with further ageing in tank for 8 months.

San Salvatore's first harvest was in 2009, but their historic vineyards were planted by the Ancient Greeks with the same varieties that continue to flourish in this region today: Falanghina, Fiano, Greco, and Aglianico. This mountainous region of Campania has a high level of biodiversity and the soil is rich in minerals. The influence of the nearby sea and ideal sun exposure help to create an ideal microclimate for viticulture and other crops.

Deeply committed to preserving the delicate balance of the land, San Salvatore takes a special interest in cultivating the vineyards without synthetic products or genetically modified organisms and uses biodynamic preparations like horn dung that favor the natural fertility of the ground and the production of benficial humus. Vines are also protected from pest and disease with the careful use of copper and sulfur when necessary.

From supplying their own power needs with an onsite photovoltaic plant and a biodigester, to reducing their carbon footprint and emissions through innovative processes. San Salvatore has truly excelled at achieving sustainable living ideals and continues to set the standard for environmental practices in the Italian wine industry.

San Salvatore is located in the heart of the Cilento National Park, near Paestum, Stio and Giungano, in the Campania region of southern Italy. With 149 hectares devoted to organically-farmed agriculture, including vineyards, olive groves, and crops that support their 550-head of water buffalo, San Salvatore has quickly become one of Italy's most environmentally-concious azienda agricolas.

Vines are also protected from pest and disease with the careful use of copper and sulfur.



All of San Salvatore's fertilizers are created in-house using natural methods. For example, fertilizers are developed in an integrated biodynamic cycle of complete recovery of the dung of the locally fed water buffaloes that live on the property. The animals naturally combine straw and manure with their clogs and encourage the production of a healthy and highly nourishing organic fertilizer. San Salvatore also has a photovoltaic plant with an electrical power of 96KW that reduces CO2 pollution and is in accordance with the UNI ISO 14064 law.
