Welcome to Cantina del Vesuvio! Experience our unique wines, born in the shadow of the volcano. More goes into our Lacryma Christi wines than just grapes. The land: tour our 12 hectares of vineyard, planted in the volcanic soil on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. The people: meet Maurizio Russo, the youngest of this historic family of vintners. The labor: see how our family has worked these hills every day since 1948 to create a winery which combines the rigours of organic production with the warmth of Italian hospitality. We only produce a limited number of bottles a year, all of which are sold directly from our own wine shop.
