Campania | Wine
Vitigni-Basilicata

Campania is 34% mountains, 51% hills and 15% flatlands. It borders with Lazio, Basilicata, Molise, Puglia and the Tyrrhenian Sea. The vineyards are 30.000 hectares and the main vines are Aglianico, Barbera, Sangiovese, Piedirosso, Montepulciano, Primitivo, Falanghina, white Malvasia di Candia, Trebbiano, Code di Volpe, Fiano, Greco, Aspirino and Biancolella. Aglianico comes from the Vite Ellenica of very ancient origins. It was in fact introduced by the Ancient Greeks. Just as ancient are Greco and Fiano which were instead imported by the Phoenicians.

Local products in the area surrounding Caserta and water springs
Only thirty minutes away from the Reggia di Caserta here is an activity to discover and taste the local products and to see a water spring in the Parco del Riardo. Two days characterised by breath-taking views of vineyards, olive tree groves and medieval towns, this is the chance to get acquainted with enterprises such as Il Verro and Il Casale di Riardo and to visit a park that is being redeveloped by the FAI (Fondo Ambientale Italiano). In this park people can enjoy a dramatic scenery characterised by beautiful waterways, oak trees, olive tree groves, and organic plantations – and why not sample and taste different kinds of fresh mineral waters.
