Luigi Maffini

Giungano, Cilento,
Campania, Italy

About the producer

Situated in the picturesque region of Cilento, nestled in the southern heart of Campania, Luigi Maffini's vineyards occupy a landscape of breathtaking natural beauty, graced by the presence of the Ancient Greek site of Paestum. Perched majestically above the Tyrrhenian Sea, this extraordinary parcel of land boasts rugged hills adorned with lush Mediterranean vegetation and olive trees, forming an idyllic setting perfectly conducive to viticulture. Although the family's initial vine plantings trace back to the seventies, the true inception of this winery unfolds in 1996, when Luigi embarked on a quest to craft wines of uncompromising integrity and purity, showcasing the unique character of indigenous grapes.
