The name of the company gets its origin from the homonymous place located in the countryside of the hamlet San Michele, between Pratola Serra and Montefalcione, where it’s still possible to admire, right near one of our vineyards, a majestic megalithic monument made of three stones about five metres high and two metres wide, thrust deep into soil, one beside the other, according to a disposition denominated “menhir alignment” by archaeologists.
Struck by the charme of the place, the Lucanian writer Maria Padula, also famous for her valuable painting production, set in it a brief and suggestive tale in which she told of how Silpa, a shepherd from Irpinia, would free the inhabitants of the area from the bloody fierceness of Cronopa, the Ogre.
Our family claims very ancient traditions in viticulture, and since 1993 it exploits its products by transforming them directly in the new cellar created at the company centre, where the resort to the most advanced techniques in winemaking enables to confer a special stand out to the fragrances and to the flavours of the incomparable wines of Irpinia.
