Cantina del Taburno

Cantina del Taburno is a cooperative founded in 1972 on the slopes of the inactive volcano Monte Taburno, in the province of Benevento, north of Naples. It belongs to the Agricultural Consortium of Benevento which was established in 1901. There are 300 members who work around 600 hectares of vineyards spread between Foglianise, Torrecuso, Vitulano, Campoli del Monte Taburno, Castelpoto, Apollosa, Bonea, Montesarchio, Ponte, Tocco Caudio, Paupisi and Benevento. The soils are clayey and Marley-calcareous; the winters are mild and the summers dry and warm – perfect conditions for growing grapes. They specialise in indigenous varieties. The main grape is Aglianico del Sannio, supported with two other autochthonous vines, Piederosso and Sciascinoso, together with Sangiovese and Merlot. Falanghina is the main white varietal, supported with Coda di Volpe, Greco and Fiano. Professor Luigi Molio, one of the major winemakers in Campania has consulted at Cantina del Taburno since 1998, and the Cantina is associated with the university of Naples; it has an analysis laboratory and a laboratory for micro-vinification on site and many students use these facilities to conduct research. From this historic area of vines a broad portfolio of wines are produced which can compete with the finest wines of the region at a price that will not damage your pocket.
