The roots of the vines that climb the slopes of Vesuvius sink into the dark and porous lava soil. This soil does not need to be watered as it retains moisture and then releases it. The vines arrived in these lands in the 5th century BC. brought here by the Greeks and descended directly from the Aminei of Thessaly. Here the grapes grow strong and vigorous: the vines, most of which are ungrafted, are grown in the foothills up to 400 meters high and derive mineral character, thickness and power from the volcanic soil.

Tasting notes: Intense and fruity aroma with hints of apples, bananas and peaches. Dry and slightly acidic flavor, well structured, with a fruity-floral aroma.

Why we like it: The tears of Christ, saddened by the theft of a strip of Paradise, bathed the arid soil of Vesuvius, giving rise to the Lacryma Christi wine.

Pairings: Clams, shellfish, fish soup, seafood risotto, vegetables and fresh cheeses.

Le Lune del Vesuvio Winery

The family-run agricultural and processing company "Le Lune del Vesuvio" is located in the hilly area of the Vesuvius National Park at an altitude of approximately 400 meters.
Situated a short distance from the urban center of Terzigno, it covers an area of about 1 hectare right in the heart of the Vesuvius National Park, overlooking the wonders of the ancient Pompeii excavations, the island of Capri, and the Gulf of Naples.

Their production system focuses on vineyards, fruit, and seasonal vegetables (such as the "Pomodorino del Piennolo del Vesuvio") and follows conventional agriculture methods on the typical terraced fields. In the adjacent cellar, the grapes from their vineyards contribute to the production of Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio wine.

A product born out of passion and love for one's own land.

In a setting that carefully combines the environment of pure and pristine mountains, surrounded by the jewels of the sea from the island of Capri and the coastlines of Sorrento and Amalfi, Andrea and Salvatore Forno preserve the traditional winemaking heritage of Campania. The history of Vesuvio Lacryma Christi is a blend of myth and reality, legend and popular beliefs, contributing to creating an aura of alluring mystery around this famous wine.

One of these legends suggests that Lucifer, expelled from Paradise, tore a piece of it to steal and create the Gulf of Naples on Earth. Where he sank, Mount Vesuvius was born.

Jesus Christ, noticing the theft, wept profusely out of sorrow, and from his tears that fell directly onto Vesuvius, a vine plant sprouted, and from the grape of that vine, the most renowned wine of Vesuvius was born: Lacryma Christi. The wines of Le Lune del Vesuvio spend several months in stainless steel tanks, except for some selections that undergo maturation in barrels, mostly a combination of new and used wood, primarily the "Cratere Lacryma Christi."
