Description

The Astroni winery is a Campanian wine production company, established in Naples, in the heart of the Phlegraean Fields to continue at very high levels the best local wine-making tradition, aiming exclusively at indigenous vines and producing wines with a strong typicalness aimed at a young, but cultured public. The Varchetta Family can boast of four generations of passion and experience and more than a century of devotion to wine and the strength of a modern wine-growing culture that respects tradition looking to the future. In 1891, Vincent Varchetta decided that it was necessary to increase his own activity, it was the moment to transform what was an ancient pleasure, the art of making wine, into a flourishing commercial activity, but only through the hard work of his son, Giovanni, having returned from the Second World War that such conviction became reality. "Don Giovanni", experienced connoisseur of every vine-covered corner of the Campania, transferred his passion and all his experience to his children, who today together with their grandchildren continue a fully exploited project of Campanian ampelography offering a strongly traditional wine-growing, adequately filtered and enriched by the modern techniques of cultivation and transformation.
