Our wine is made with aglianico grapes that are grown exclusively in our vineyards.

Each of our vines are distinct and unique, linked to the specific piece of land where they grow. In our cellar, we focus on those differences to produce wine that can not be made anywhere else. 

In addition to the four “Aglianico del Vulture” DOC red wines (Messer Oto, Liscone, Bauccio, and Drogone) we also produce a rosé wine and a white wine IGT from the same grape (Sagaris, Leuconoe).

Venosa’s history, culture and unique places have inspired the names of our wines.
