STORIE FEUDI WAS BORN TO TELL ABOUT THE COMMITMENT OF FEUDI DI SAN GREGORIO TOWARDS ITS LAND.
A commitment specifically to describe the wonders of Irpinia (in the Campania region) to wine lovers from all over the world, through Stories and Images.
The history of Feudi di San Gregorio is closely linked to its reference area, Irpinia (in the Campania region). The inspiration for its own creation comes from the difficulties experienced by Irpinia after the 1980 earthquake and from the desire to build an opportunity for growth around a product that had always been a key element of this territory.
L’Irpinia, the green heart of the Campania region, looks like a predominantly mountainous area with peaks that exceed 1800 metres. From a climatic point of view, it is distinguished by strong temperature variations, rainfall of over 100 days a year – 1200/1300 mm of water – and cold and snowy winters.
Thanks to its soils, which have strong volcanic and sandy matrices in large areas, the vines have been preserved from the Grape phylloxera epidemic that arrived at the beginning of the twentieth century.
These unique soils allow Irpinia to be considered one of the cradles of the new European viticulture.
From ancient times the wisdom of gestures, the way of cultivating the land and the relationship itself with the same, have remained practically unaltered, preserving the knowledge of precious practices, which have been forgotten elsewhere.
