Mastroberardino company is fully committed to traditional cultivation of ancient grape varietals, with ability to blend modern technology with time-tested techniques. The Mastroberardino long term goal has been focusing on wines reflecting the typical characters and notes of the Irpinia territory (located in the province of Avellino – Campania region – Italy).
The family owns an extensive network of vineyards in the DOCG’s area like Montemarano, Mirabella, Lapio, Pietradefusi, in “Taurasi DOCG” appellation; Montefusco, Santa Paolina, Tufo, Petruro in “Greco di Tufo DOCG” appellation; Santo Stefano del Sole, Lapio, Montefalcione, Manocalzati in “Fiano di Avellino DOCG” appellation; the Apice estate in “Sannio DOC”, and the vineyards located in the archeological site of Pompeii. Mastroberardino has been working to identify different zones with distinctive type of soil in the Irpinia areas, in order to select the most quality sites to get the best grapes for making wines with personality.
The Mastroberardino vineyards are located in different altitudes, starting from 450 meters above the sea level up to 700 meters. The benefit is the high difference in temperature between daytime and night, a unique microclimate in the worldwide viticulture scenario.
The company collects climate data on daily basis in all vineyards using weather stations in order to understand the vines healthy conditions and possible plant water stress. A micro-vinificationcenter located in the old winery of Atripalda (Avellino) is the key to analyze the specific character and peculiar notes of the grapes coming from the different vines in the family estates.
