    Along the slopes of Vesuvius, streaks of fire shone and glowed against the background of the night's darkness, and from the rows of vines a red light could be seen, it was the moon, a fiery red moon.

    The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in previously sanitised plastic crates. A maximum of 15 kg of grapes is placed in each crate to prevent the grapes from being naturally crushed during transport. A bag containing dry ice is placed on top of each box to keep the grapes at a temperature that prevents premature and uncontrolled fermentation. Once in the winery, the grapes are processed in a grape crusher, this process allows us to separate the stems from the grapes and to crush them, after this phase the destemmed grapes are placed in steel silos, where fermentation at a controlled temperature of 24/26° lasts for about 8/10 days after fermentation the must is placed in maturation tanks to then be processed and bottled.

    Cantina Le Lune del Vesuvio is a true gem of the Campania region, nestled in the picturesque hilly area of the Vesuvius National Park at an altitude of approximately 400 meters.

    This family-owned agricultural and transformation company covers about one hectare of land, offering a stunning panorama that includes the wonders of the ancient Pompeii ruins, the island of Capri, and the Gulf of Naples. The productive activities, including viticulture, fruit cultivation, and horticulture (with a focus on the Pomodorino del Piennolo del Vesuvio and seasonal vegetables), are carried out on typical terraces using conventional agricultural methods.

    In the adjacent cellar, grapes harvested from the company's vineyards contribute to the production of the renowned Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio wine.

    Since 1940, the Forno family, led by "Nonno Andrea" and subsequently by his son Francesco and grandsons Andrea and Salvatore, has achieved prestigious milestones in the wine industry. Their mission has always been clear: to run a business while preserving their land and outstanding wines, all the while maintaining a strong connection to their farming roots.
