Winemaker Notes
The name of the grape Falanghina derives from Falernina, for his great diffusion in Ager Falernus. Were probably the Roman merchants to bring in Italy this grape from Greece, spreading the cultivation to the Centre and the South. The first written mention of a grape that name dates back to 1804; It is found later in the work of his father’s former provincial agriculture Niccola Columella honored that fits between the grapes Falanghina “good to eat”. n the 20th century the Falanghina begins to be considered among the best Italian grape varieties and cultivation is recommended to improve the production of the main wine-growing areas of the South.
Food & Wine Pairing
Aperitif, simple fish and vegetables. Fresh cheeses such as mozzarella di Bufala!

Vigna dei Lupi was born in 2007 from a group of friends’ desire to invest time and resources into a project of excellence, unique for its quality and image. The winery is located in the Avellino province (Campania region – South of Italy). The estate extends for twelve hectares (= “DODICIETTARI”), of which nine planted with grapevines.
