Immersed in the green hills of Irpinia at almost 700 meters above sea level, in a generous and flourishing nature characterized by valleys, hills and luxuriant waterways, there is the Riccio Winery which continues the millenary tradition with "I vini di Janus" in Made in Italy winemaking.

Giuseppe De Marco, owner of the winery, has chosen to resume the ancient family tradition of vine cultivation in Irpinia, obtaining exceptional products entirely Made in Italy. The location, Chiusano, is perfectly suited to the cultivation of the vine and the abundant supply of waterways, accompanied by a particularly favorable wind game, confer excellent quality characteristics to the wines produced in the area, ennobling the fruit of the vine. a product of the highest quality, the "Janus wines", which caters to the most refined palates and the most demanding tastes.

It has been chosen to report on the label the writing "I vini di Janus", to remember the origin of the name of the locality Chiusano, where there are the cultivation of vines, which derives from a temple dedicated to Janus, god of the beginnings - also of war - which in times of peace was clausus, ie closed.

Finally, the “Campore” Extra Dry Sparkling Wine, fruity, complex and elegant, ideal to combine with cured meats, shellfish and seafood.
