This winery is run by an enthusiastic group of dedicated cousins, Maria Luisa Murena, Arturo and Dora Celentano, and Francesco Catello.
The estate is firmly committed to making wine of the highest quality and has reaffirmed this commitment by hiring the distinguished oenologist, Riccardo Cotarella
who shares their philosophy. Together they strive to maximize the intrinsic characteristics of the native grapes Aglianico and Piedirosso through attentive and careful vineyard management.
The winery and surrounding hillside vineyards are located at approximately 1,300 feet above sea level and benefit of ideal growing conditions, such as climate and exposure.
The name of their praised icon wine Terra di Lavoro or “Land of Work” in Italian, reflects the soil composition in the area which is extremely rocky, thus difficult to cultivate.
Yields and overall volume are very low; only a few thousand bottles are produced each year although the winery will have almost 30 acres under production in the future.
The owners and Cotarella decided to focus on the native varietals Aglianico and Piedirosso.
