Casa Setaro is located in Trecase, in the province of Naples, within the Vesuvius National Park. From here, the Setaro family with Massimo and Maria Rosaria at the helm has been able to revolutionize the style and perception of Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio, Aglianico, Falanghina and Piedirosso, and also bringing back into vogue, native vines at risk of extinction, such as Caprettone.
The Setaro family began to devote themselves to the cultivation of grapes and their transformation, in a sustainable and identifying way, through that wealth of knowledge and ancient knowledge handed down from father to son. Together, they safeguard the history of Vesuvian viticulture with love.
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 always with an eye to innovation and the future.
