Wines that smell of Sannio

Wines that smell of Sannio

The Cantina di Solopaca is one of the oldest agricultural cooperatives in Campania. With about 120 thousand hectoliters of wine produced it is at the forefront of regional production. The vineyards are located in a vast area that starting from the municipality of Solopaca involves other 16 neighboring municipalities, reaching a total vineyard area of about 1100 hectares. In this territory the Solopaca DOC is grown, the first wine in the Sannio to have obtained the recognition of controlled origin (D.O.C.) in 1974.
The cultivated varieties are Falanghina, Aglianico, Greco and Fiano. In recent years, traditional vines such as Coda di Volpe and Barbera have also been rediscovered. The Municipality of Solopaca is located at the foot of the Taburno-Camposauro Regional Park, in the province of Benevento, in the heart of the ancient Sannio, an area that has always been dedicated to viticulture which is still today defined as the Campania winery.
The cultivated grapes are harvested with traditional systems and delivered to the cellar where, after careful selection, they are vinified and bottled. The wine plant is equipped with state-of-the-art winemaking and bottling equipment and a barrel cellar where red wines are refined. The company also has a room for autoclaves where sparkling wines and semi-sparkling wines are produced. The vast assortment of wines, distributed not only in Italy but also abroad, is able to satisfy the different types of consumption, from daily use to the most sophisticated catering, combining the most ancient tradition with the most modern techniques.
