Cantina del Vesuvio is a winery specialized in Lacryma Christi, a wine produced exclusively on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius and almost unknown outside of the region of Campania, despite its long history. This wine was made and beloved by ancient Romans, and vineyards have covered these mountain slopes since the 5th century BC. The winery has kept this ancient tradition alive by growing heirloom Caprettone and Piedirosso grapes to make their limited number of bottles of organic wine, sold only through the winery.
Cantina del Vesuvio offers guided tastings and cooking classes, a unique way to discover the history and culture of the Vesuvius National Park while enjoying the quiet of the countryside and extraordinary views over the Bay of Naples.
"The first time was wonderful, so I brought my friends. The second time, though, the owner was very rude. As we were paying, he was rushing us to get out of the way and telling us to be quiet. Not good"
"Mukava paikka. Sorrentosta poikkesimme päiväreissulle ja oli hyvin käytettyä aikaa."
"What a wonderful place to visit, the staff and owner could not have been more hospitable, we felt like guests in their very interesting home. The wine was a delight especially the frizante. "
Cantina del Vesuvio is located at Trecase, halfway between Pompeii and the Mount Vesuvius National Park.
