A unique grape variety
The Greco is one of the most important grape varieties in the world “at risk of extinction”; hence the origin of the Storie Feudi project.
The Greco has a very long history and was one of the first grape varieties narrated by Pliny the Elder, who already exalted its quality and expressive depth.
The Greco di Tufo DOCG has existed since 2003 and is the smallest of the three Irpinia DOCG areas by territorial extension. The vineyards are small, spread out across the entire area and the most densely planted area is the one that develops in the north-east quadrant, between the municipalities of Tufo, Santa Paolina and Montefusco. A wine of great character and longevity is born from the Greco grapes, harvested in October. The chalky soils of Tufo give the wine, despite the climatic changes, a marked minerality, freshness and persistence, such as to allow the Greco to compare itself with the great white wines of the world.

The commitment to this land
The signs of agricultural abandonment of an area where grape production is the main activity are increasingly clear despite the indisputable potential of Greco di Tufo, which has been praised by many professional tasters, not only of Italian origin. One of the main commitments undertaken by Feudi di San Gregorio, through the transformation of its legal status into a Benefit Company in May 2021 and a new contractual policy towards its stakeholders, is precisely to give the farmers of the territory economic and productive stability in order for them to not abandon their lands.
