Casa Setaro Lacryma Christi was born in Campania, on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, from an initiative of a family that with great dedication was able to revolutionize the style and perception of Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Doc, thus reversing the declining vinification of Aglianico, Falanghina and Piedirosso, and also reviving native vines at risk of extinction, such as Caprettone.
The Setaro family began to devote themselves to the cultivation of grapes and its transformation, in a sustainable and identifying way, through that wealth of knowledge and ancient knowledge handed down from Vincenzo to his son Massimo Setaro and his wife Maria Rosaria.
Together they safeguard the history of Vesuvian viticulture with loving care.
Production takes place in full respect of the environment, with a range of eclectic wines consistent with the company philosophy. All are representative wines of a Vesuvius steeped in history, but with an eye always on innovation and the future.
