Visit at the Antonio Caggiano winery

Today, we had the pleasure of visiting Antonio Caggiano Winery in Taurasi, renowned for its Aglianico Grand' Cru of the Campania region. Giuseppe Caggiano (known as Pino) was our gracious host and tour guide, showing us the underground winery that was hand-dug by the family since its inception. The winery was constructed in 1990, a decade after the devastating earthquake that destroyed the area. It took many years to reconstruct the towns affected by the disaster, and the Caggiano family used this time to build a state-of-the-art facility to craft their wines in a clean and secure environment. Antonio Caggiano, Pino's father and the founder of the winery, has since devoted his time to his passions of photography and painting, leaving the day-to-day operations of the winery to his children.

Pino Caggiano, an architect by trade, has left his mark on the winery, which features furniture crafted from the wood of the barrels used in production. His artistic touch is evident in the two award-winning Aglianico wines, a Taurasi DOCG that requires 18 months aging in wood and 12 months in the bottle, and a Campi Taurasini DOC with less stringent regulations. The winery also produces excellent whites from the Irpinia region, including Greco di Tufo DOCG, Fiano DOCG, and Falanghina, as well as two sparkling wines: a Blanc made from Fiano grapes and a rosé made from Aglianico grapes. Additionally, they produce a passito (sweet wine from Fiano) and a grappa liqueur. With an annual production of 180,000 bottles, the winery is capable of producing 10 times that amount, though the Caggiano family chooses to prioritize quality over quantity.

The pictures depict what I just said, the wines we acquired will be tasted in the future and therefore their notes will be published as we always do.
