Overview

Nestled near the historic village of Barile in Basilicata’s Vulture region, the Vigne di Mezzo estate was established by the founders of Feudi di San Gregorio in 2000. The endeavor is designed to give new impetus to the winemaking industry of this ancient winemaking region and was inspired by the enormous success achieved at the Feudi di San Gregorio estate in the neighboring region of Campania. Along with the expert guidance of consulting enologist Riccardo Cotarella, one of Italy’s most esteemed winemaking talents, Vigne di Mezzo has the precise intention of spreading what the people of this area have shared for thousands of years: a passion for viticulture. The estate emphasizes the inherent quality of Basilicata’s terroir while placing a modern spin on native grapes in an effort to bring recognition to the lesser-known treasures of the south.This concentrated red wine is made from Aglianico grapes grown on the lower slopes of the Vulture mountain in Basilicata, southern Italy
