On Monday, January 16, the Diversi Vignaioli Irpini (Different Irpini winemakers) consortium presented to the press and sector operators the association they created some six years ago. Its members, all small and certified top quality wineries, are: Tenuta Sarno 1860, Villa Diamante, Le Ormere, Cantine Bambinuto, Antico Castello, Luigi Tecce, Cantine Lonardo, Guastaferro, Joaquin, Cantina Giardino and Contrade di Taurasi. The aim of the association, as explained at the presentation by its president Francesco Romano from Antico Castello, is to promote their generous land through extraordinary wines.

The presentation included a seminar and tasting – with wines from a number of the estates – conducted by the sommelier and journalist Monica Collucci, an expert and passionate champion of the area or Irpinia. Between tastings of Taurasi, Greco di Tufo and Fiano di Avellino, she explained the zone’s different realities and the relative wines they produced.
