Baroni Capoano cantina Calabria

An old estate that in recent years has embarked in the wine market with greater determination.

The old Capoano family has always cultivated grapes and made wine for personal use. It was only in 1997 that surgeon Raffaele Capoano began to bottle the wine made at his estate on the hills above Cirò Marina.

The estate is run today by Massimiliano Capoano, Raffaele’s son, who took over from his father in 2005. The estate has some 20 hectares of land and aside from grapes they also cultivate olives to produce oil.
