Ep. 1298 in which Marc Millon interviews Cristina Varchetta of the Cantine Astroni in Naples
🍷More about the winery:
The Varchetta family has been making wine for over a hundred years and has always placed attention to the territory at the base of their work without ever losing sight how important pleasure is.
In was in 1892 when Vincenzo Varchetta decided to strengthen his wine making activity. He was convinced that the time was right to transform the pleasure of producing wine into a thriving business. A decisive contribution was made by his son Giovanni, who , after returning home from the Second World War, managed to concretely transform his father’s dreams into reality. “Don Giovanni”, expert in every aspect of Campania vineyards, instilled in his children and grandchildren all his passion and expertise that he had accumulated over the years.
With a history expanding over four generations, the family founded the #AstroniWinery in 1999, engaging in a project to protect and enhance #Campania ampelography and offering an oenology of strong traditions enriched by modern cultivation and vinification techniques.
The Astroni Winery’s mission is the enhancement of native varieties through the preservation of biodiversity and protection of wine traditions of the territory, a theme of topical and great interest in view of environmental protection.
