since 1900

Our winery

The vineyards of Adelina Molettieri cover approximately 4 hectares and are planted on the hillside of “Contrada Chianzano” (a little district in Irpinia territory).  The exposure and composition of the soil are crucial for a correct and healthy maturation of the grapes.

Adelina Molettieri’s winemaker family replanted historical paternal grapes grafting wine variety, which endure undamaged to phylloxera in the early 1900.

The real intention of Adelina’s wine passionate family is to preserve the vineyards traditional farming and grapes harvest; in fact, they still hand over an ancient farming system called “Tennecchia”.
