Poggio Delle Baccanti is located in Sant’Antonio Abate, next to Naples in the Penisola Sorrentina, overlooking Mt Vesuvius. They have been making Neapolitan wines for 3 generations and they specialize in Gragnano, Lacryma Christi Bianco, and Lacryma Christi Rosso. The winery farms organically and wines are all made with extremely low amounts of sulphur. Their Lacryma Christi Rosso is fruit forward, with a long finish. Organically farmed Piedirosso from volcanic soils. No chemicals, hand harvested, fermented with native yeasts in steel tanks before aging in used barrels.
The La Mura family has been making wine on the Sorrento Peninsula, on the slopes of the famous volcano, Mt. Vesuvio, since the 1950’s. They work only with local varietals and have made “a pact with the earth” to treat it with respect, a philosophy that supports their organic farming and low-intervention winemaking practices. This is their table wine, made of the Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio grape, which translates to "The Tears of Christ on Vesuvius”. Italians -- in their typical dramatic fashion – so named the grape after Jesus' tears which he shed at the foot of Vesuvius (not sure why he was crying at this particular spot), but that sparked the miraculous growth of the region’s grapevines. Whatever the origin of the grape, it makes a delicious wine to accompany food (especially pizza and tomato-sauce based delights or anything grilled) and friends. Serve with a slight chill.
