Gabriella Ferrara manages this small estate, that has been in her family for many generations, together with her husband Sergio. The major part of the vineyards (8 hectares) stands in the district of San Paolo within the commune of Tufo, which is considered the best zone for the Greco grape variety. The Aglianico vineyards (3.3 hectares) stand in the zone of Montemiletto. The altitude is ideal between 450 and 600 meters above sea level with southern exposure, the area is cool and airy, which naturally protects the vines against frosts and diseases. The Greco vineyards stand next to abandoned sulphur mines and sulphur rocks can be found amongst the vines: this gives the wines wonderful mineral notes. The cellar equipment is extremely modern. The talented oenologist Paolo Caciorna helps the Ferrara family make great wines that are appreciated worldwide.
Producer
The Company was built in the late ’70ies by Benito Ferrara, father of Gabriella Ferrara, who, nowadays is the company boss, together with her husband Sergio Ambrosino. The days flow slowly here in Tufo while Gabriella and her family just take care of the vineyard and wait until it’s the right time to collect the grapes and turn them into the well known wine called Greco di Tufo. Every year, from the first to the third week of October the Ferrara Family dream comes true in doing such a nice wine, whose quality is well known to people all around the world.
