Wines in Campania

wine campaniaLet’s start our journey in Campania region with the incredible wines produced here. Among the most fertile areas of Campania there is the province of Benevento, crossed by the Strada dei Vini and the typical Terre dei Sanniti products. The Sannio, the Sant ‘Agata dei Goti, the Solopaca, the Falanghina, and the Taburno produced there are all wines that can bear the Doc, squisiti!

Less well known to the general public, but no less tasty, are the wines produced between Caserta, Aversa, Sessa Aurunca and Santa Maria Capua Vetere. Consider that the Falerno del Massico Doc is considered the natural heir of Falernum, the most drunk wine of ancient Rome.

It’s not over yet: even the Campi Flegrei, Ischia island and Vesuvius are protagonists in Campania wines. Just think of the Piedirosso and the Sciascinoso; native vines from which we obtain wines that are affected by the lava soil giving a very particular taste to products such as Lacrima Christi.

Food in Campania

Let’s think about tomatoes: from this simple fruit is born the most famous dish in the world, pizza!

Another important chapter of Italian cuisine is occupied by Buffalo Mozzarella, produced in Mondragone, Battipaglia, Capua and Eboli: another pride of regional food.

What about desserts? Even in this field, Campania region has much to tell: if you are visiting Naples you cannot miss the crispy sfogliatelle with ricotta cheese, and babà soaked in liqueur.

Of course, we cannot forget to mention Limoncello, a true symbol of the land.

Naples is precious, for its colors and its liveliness: suggestive churches and baroque obelisks are all over, and if you add food to that, the result is PERFECT!
