The company is layed down on hills scattered by Valle del Volturno vineyards. Terre del Principe wine cellar is a precious jewel case where Peppe’s and Manuela’s life is managed according to the periods of the wines that “breath or rest” in the wine cellar. As a child who is growing up, the wines are followed step by step from the hand harvest grape through the grape crushing until the bottling. At the same time, all the efforts are in the cure of the vineyard where the grapes that will be the next season’s wines are growing and developing.

To mark the precious wine cellar time there is our closest friend: the professor Luigi Moio. His wine and scientific experience, his passion, his deep knowledge of Campania cultivar, in particular of Pallagrello and Casavecchia, make him a key link in this adventure. As we usually say, Pallagrello and Casavecchia are for us like “Pinocchio”( the puppet main character in Collodi’s most famous novel) whom Peppe gives the heart, Manuela the speech and Luigi the cleverness.

In the heart of Castel Campagnano is Terre del Principe’s historical wine cellar.It is like a cathedral 10 meters deep in the heart of the earth.This 100 square meter antique cave takes us back in time.A cave entirely dug out by hand out of tufo stone, with thousands of chisel marks.It dates back to the 10th century which is the period in which Castel Campagnano was founded. The cellar opens up into a large area dating back to the 15th century, complete with a well, charcoal oven, and at what was at one time a millstone.According to some historians, the cellar could have been part of the Longobardo castle’s external warehouse in which during the 1700s the Ducal Palace was constructed. It has served as Terre del Principe ’s wine cellar. At the first floor there is the modern cellar.
