Made in Calabria
For centuries olive trees, citrus fruits and vines are the key assets of Calabria, a fertile and generous land where the wines have an ancient history. The Greeks led, in fact, in the precious vines. This explains "Enotria" name that at the time of Ancient Greece indicated the territories of Calabria and Lucania overlooking the Ionian Sea, which in greek means, precisely, "land of wine".
