The Montesommavesuvio company is located in the municipality of Pollena Trocchia, province of Naples, an integral part of the Vesuvius National Park, at mt. 400 above sea level, with an extension of 4.5 hectares completely terraced, it has an excellent South-West exposure. The composition of the soil is essentially lava-sandy, due to the lapillus residues of the Vesuvian eruptions. The work and commitment lead us successfully to the cultivation of those native vines that participate in the formation of white and red Lacryma Christi, Catalanesca and Falanghina.
Founded in 2000 the company was born from the brilliant intuition of prof. Giuseppe Campanile, former teacher as well as agricultural expert, who acquires and cultivates hectares of abandoned land in the magnificent scenery which is the Vesuvius National Park.
The company, over the years thanks to the passion of Nicola Campanile, owner and son of the founder Giuseppe, specializes in the cultivation, transformation and enhancement of native vines using only the grapes produced.
The acquisition and consequent cultivation of abandoned land combined with the research and application of the best biological control techniques make the Montesommavesuvio farm an exhausting assertion of valorisation as a final goal.

Within the company, fundamental principles are upheld:
Respect for Nature
The company has refrained from using pesticides from day one, opting for non-invasive cultivation. Pest control is managed by preserving and controlling natural antagonists in the environment.
Native Grape Varieties
Our wines originate from the plants of native grape varieties, grafted on their own rootstock.
Controlled winemaking is one of the essential processes for transforming the grapes that the company employs. This is done to create wines that are unique and imbued with a strong Vesuvian character.
