More goes into our Lacryma Christi wine than just grapes:
The land: Tour our 16-hectare vineyard, planted in the volcanic soil of the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius.
The people: Meet Maurizio Russo, the youngest of this historic family of winemakers.
The work: See how our family has worked these hills every day since 1930 to create a winery that combines the rigors 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 16-hectare vineyard is planted with indigenous Piedirosso and Caprettone grapes. We also produce a limited quantity of extra-virgin olive oil from our olive groves on Mt. Vesuvius, liqueur from Vesuvius-grown apricots, and barrel-aged Grappa di Vinacce. Our products are available exclusively in our shop at the winery and our online shop.Buy online

Cantina del Vesuvio is located in the open countryside on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius. Situated in the village of Trecase, the winery is only a few kilometers from the archaeological site of Pompeii. This position makes Cantina del Vesuvio an ideal stopping point between a visit to Pompeii and a climb to the crater of Mt. Vesuvius.
