Seven hectares of terraces in the middle of Amalfi Coast
The vineyards of Apicella’s wineries stand out on about 7 hectares of terraces, located at an altitude between 300 and 600 meters above sea level, mainly exposed to midday.
The estates are all located in Tramonti, in the heart of Amalfi Coast, set in the protected natural area of “Monti Lattari”.
We conduct the vineyard by winning the slopes; riping it off from the hills and cultivating our grapes with integrated pest management practices (IPM).
The land consists of incoherent tuffs and debris. The vines are frank feet, bred at atypical rays.
This is the elements mix thanks to which we get an excellent wine.
Evident traces of a viticulture with an ancient tradition (plants of the early ‘900) are found in the Municipality of Tramonti, which can boast the presence on its territory of native vines, that is, freefoot, implanted with the typical Tramonti pergola breeding.
Cantine Apicella preserves these centuries-old vineyards and is committed to recovering all the varieties of native grapes including Tintore di Tramonti, Pepella, Ginestra, Biancazita, Piedirosso.
The rite of the grape harvest
From the vineyard to bottling
Every year, since 1977, in this family-run company the prodigy of Bacchus in the harvest is renewed, which after months of meticulous care is a day of celebration, a ritual that is repeated.
