World-famous cuisine and marvelous coastal landscapes
Campania: refreshing white wines and complex reds
Once the political core of the kingdom of two Sicilies, which covered the entire suface of Southern Italy, Campania is best-known for world-famous tourist destinations such as the gulf of Naples, the Amalfi coast, the islands of Capri and Ischia, and the Pompeii archeological site on the foothills of the Vesuvius volcano. The birthplace of Pizza napoletana, the region’s chief town, Naples, is one of the cradles of Italian cuisine.
The region boasts an ancient viticultural tradition: Falernum from Campania was the world’s most sought-after wine in Roman times. Today, wine production in Campania is quantitatively limited but qualitatively relevant. Native white grapes dominate the regional scene, producing crisp and refreshing wines that match light and flavorful Mediterranean cuisine.
