Welcome to Cantina del Vesuvio! Experience our unique wines, born in the shadow of the volcano.
More goes into our Lacryma Christi wines than just grapes:
The land: tour our 12 hectares of vineyard, planted in the volcanic soil on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius.
The people: meet Maurizio Russo, the youngest of this historic family of vintners.
The labor: see how our family has worked these hills every day since 1948 to create a winery which combines the rigours of organic production with the warmth of Italian hospitality. We only produce a limited number of bottles a year, all of which are sold directly from our own wine shop.
Our wines and other organic products
Our 12 hectares of vineyard are planted with indigenous Piedirosso and Caprettone grapes. We also produce a limited quantity of extra-virgin olive oil from our olive groves on Vesuvius, distillate from Vesuvius-grown apricots, and barrel-aged Grappa di Vinacce. Our products are available exclusively in our winery shop.
