Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco DOC
Wine with a prestigious name and an origin that is lost in legend: God wept when he found a strip of sky stolen by Lucifer in the Gulf of Naples and, where his tears fell, the vine of Lacryma Christi was born. Given the extraordinary nature of the area, very rich in ash mixed with lava and lapilli, between which the vine climbs with difficulty, it is not possible to ignore so much force of nature in the expression of aromas and flavors.

The Mastroberardino family has lived in the socio-cultural context of wine for over two centuries, based on the most reliable historical reconstructions.

The first traces of its presence in Irpinia date back to the Bourbon land registry, in the mid-eighteenth century, when the family chose the village of Atripalda as its headquarters, where the ancient cellars are still located, and from there originated a lineage that linked indissolubly their fate to the cult of wine.

Ten generations, since then, have led the family business, amidst ups and downs, as always happens in the stories of family businesses of more ancient origin.The family estates are located in Irpinia, cradle of three DOCGs: Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino and Taurasi, distributed in the various areas of the territory with the aim of preserving their identity and ensuring their protection.
