About the producer

Since its establishment in 1972, Cantina del Taburno has played a pivotal role in the advancement of agriculture in the Sannio area. Nestled on the slopes of the dormant volcano Mount Taburno, Cantina del Taburno stands as a cornerstone of viticulture in the Campania region. Originally founded in 1972, it became a beacon for the local wine industry. In the early 1980s, the estate was acquired by the Agricultural Consortium of Benevento, leading to significant modernization and expansion efforts, generously supported by both local and European communities.
