WINES

TERRE DI PETRARA

WHERE THE PLEASURE OF WINE ENCOUNTERS EXCELLENCE.

The fine wines come from the hilly vineyards belonging for centuries to the Simonelli family, advocate of the ancient agricultural profession of viticulture and wine production. The first documents of this history date back to 1816, today faithfully reproduced on the bottle labels. A local production whose tasting was reserved to a few close friends until 2010, when the Simonelli family decided to offer the public the tradition of its wines so that they could be tasted and appreciated even outside their own borders.

The biggest challenge was to preserve the original flavor enjoyed by those who uncorked that wine for the first time, bottling the authenticity and style that have always distinguished the family tradition.

THE VINEYARD

In Terre di Petrara’s wines you can savor the aromas of the fertile land of Irpinia: volcanic, mineral and exposed to particular climatic conditions.
The ancient “Apianum” vineyard, which the Simonelli family cares for historically, extends into the “Valle del Calore” excavated over the centuries by the waters of the river that brings the same name: an ideal area for the highest viticulture quality that gives the territory an excellence recognized worldwide.
Watching over the crops is a large and centenary oak, a witness of the history of the family and its territory, which today stands as a symbol in Terre di Petrara’s logo. The family vines have been carefully selected and today they guarantee a production of wines of uncommon value, with a strong character and a unique personality.
