An ambassador company in the world of the unmistakable taste of wine made in Irpinia
The green Irpinia, with its wooded mountains and the green and uncontaminated hills, its natural parks and its naturalistic oases but above all with its excellent wines, tells the world every day the story of a land rich in ancient and genuine rural traditions. In this marvelous naturalistic and landscape scenery, at an altitude ranging from 300 to 600 meters above sea level, some of the best wines of Italy and beyond are produced. And it is precisely here, in the area that extends between the Parco del Partenio and the valleys of Sabato and Calore, that in 2011 the Azienda Agricola Bellaria was born, a producer and exporter in the world of excellent wines. “The value of our wines is linked to Irpinia, one of the most uncontaminated and fertile lands in Southern Italy”, asserts Antonio Pepe, the owner of the company that today represents one of the symbols of the enological renaissance of the south of Italy. The company has indeed been able to impose its leadership on the reference market (in just a few years, exports have reached 70%) thanks to the production of an excellent wine, the highest expression of the Irpinia territory. An authentic, genuine wine, not present in the large-scale retail trade (supermarkets) and, therefore, destined for a very select target of consumers, both in Italy and abroad. A wine produced in limited quantities exclusively in the vineyards of “property”, taking great care and respect for the vine in its natural phase of vegetation and rigorous production regulations. A wine produced in limited quantities exclusively in the vineyards of “property”, taking great care and respect for the vine in its natural phase of vegetation and rigorous production regulations. The exclusive genetic patrimony of these luxuriant lands (about 16 hectares), and the careful agronomic management respectful of the environmental balances make the native wines of the Azienda Agricola Bellaria unique in their kind. Fiano di Avellino D.O.C.G., Taurasi D.O.C.G., Greco di Tufo D.O.C.G., Irpinia Falanghina D.O.C. and the Irpinia Coda di Volpe D.O.C. express the vocation and passion of a company that meticulously follows all the stages of processing, from winemaking to bottling until marketing, always attentive to the selection of a consumer lover and connoisseur of the true local wine making tradition. A company that has been able to combine a strong vocation for internationalization with the experience of working in the countryside, eager to export the genuineness of its products to tables all over the world. “The excellence of our wines, awarded in many international competitions blindly, has pushed us, in fact, to want to bring more people to the world of wine” concludes Antonio Pepe. “Also for this reason we will be present at Vinitaly to be held in Verona from April 15th to 18th (Pavilion B of Campania)”.
