Feudi di San Gregorio is today the symbolic brand of the enological renaissance of southern Italy and of a drinking culture aimed at rediscovering the identity of Mediterranean flavors. Enhance the vines of Southern Italy such as Aglianico, Fiano di Avellino and Greco di Tufo, invest in the land and in the centuries-old tradition of Irpinia viticulture, restoring a future to a unique environmental heritage.

Climbing the hill towards Sorbo Serpico, you enter a magical world, among unexpected water places, spice gardens and blooming rose gardens.

 

The biggest surprise, however, is inside the cellar: the long barrel room that houses the red wines.

The intent is to go beyond the concept of the cellar, turning it into a forum, a place for meeting, comparison, knowledge, meditation, a laboratory of ideas and culture, a place of welcome and refreshment. The project was attended by world-class professionals: the Japanese architect Hikaru Mori had the difficult task of giving architectural unity to the pre-existing structures, which have developed over time. Massimo and Lella Vignelli, symbols of Italian design in the world and "authors" of the company's labels, designed the furnishings and interiors.
