Cantina del Vesuvio

Lacryma Christi wine tasting

This land and its unique food and wine are joined by a golden thread of history and culture that weaves its way magically through the landscape at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, the cuisine created over the centuries in local kitchens, and the historic passion for Lacrima Christi, the wine that has its roots in this terroir.
Our unforgettable tasting experience combines the land and its traditions in a flavorful whole, beginning with a guided walk through the vineyards on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius overlooking the Bay of Naples, Sorrento, and the Island of Capri.
Afterwards, we'll tour the winery where our Lacryma Christi DOC is produced, and end sitting down for a wine tasting, paired with samples of local specialties from our little corner of paradise on Mount Vesuvius. Join us!

Piennolo tomatoes

This heirloom grape tomato is grown only on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, and is harvested at the beginning of the summer and traditionally hung in bunches to be preserved until the following spring, With its dense, flavorful pulp, this tomato variety is particularly suitable for pasta and pizza sauce, simmered with only a drizzle of olive oil, basil, and a pinch of salt.

Terraces and dining rooms

Guests visiting Cantina del Vesuvio love to relax on our comfortable terrace overlooking the rolling vineyards and shimmering Mediterranean, with the Island of Capri on the horizon. We hold our tastings here or, on chilly days, on our veranda with its roaring fireplace. We also have a small "club house", a rustic hut once used by the men who worked the fields.

Winery shop

Why do we sell our wines exclusively from our shop, rather than from supermarkets or wholesalers? Our unique wines and other products are deeply rooted in this local volcanic terroir on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, and we want travelers to discover this land along with its wines. You can purchase bottles in our winery shop, or online through our website.
