In 2003, Feudi di San Gregorio invested in the production of its first sparkling product. Using the method champenoise and the region’s historic varietals of Falanghina, Greco di Tufo and Aglianico grapes, Feudi produced this new innovative product, DUBL. The wines are named DUBL in honour of the two wineries that worked on this project: Feudi and their French partner, the great Champagne house of Anselme Selosse.
Joining forces with famed Champagne producer Anselme Selosse was a natural union for these unique and high end wines. DUBL is Feudi’s journey into the future of sparkling wines. The tradition of sparkling wine stems from the occupation of Naples by Louis XII in the 15th century, who demanded that the Neapolitans made a sparkling wine in his honour (he was from Champagne after all). The local winemakers selected Greco as the suitable grape for this task given the tartness of the grape reminiscent of the Chardonnay of Champagne and the chalky composition of the Tufo soil, similar to the ‘terroir’ encountered in Reims.
