PASSION, FRIENDSHIP AND JOY

DAVIDE

The “shepherd of the vine”

The youngest of the group, who is attracted by the nature, agriculture and pastoralism since he was child. He defines himself a shepherd, although he is studying at University and spend almost every day in a vineyard or in a cropfield. Guy out of time, daily cultivates his great passion.

MARIO

The “lawyer of the lost vineyards”

A lawyer, a bit philosopher too. He learnt love for vineyard by his dad and his grandfather.
However he cultivated only the playful aspect for many years. He prefered to go into the several cellars around the Vulture, laughing and drinking with friends. 
Some years ago he planned with his two friends, Maurizio and Davide, to develop the idea to promote the local tradition of winemaking, founding a new and a different winery.

MAURIZIO

A fantastic C.E.O.

He put in a drawer his degree in computer science and started to follow his childhood dream, when he played in the vineyard and in the cellar with his grandmother. So, when he was almost 50 years old, he decided to get back some lands of his family, planted vines and started his new adventure of winemaker. Curious and passionate, he spend his new life in the vineyard and in the cellar, trying to discover every secret of the nature and the grape.
