In the early 1980s, Erminia, Generoso and Roberto Di Meo acquired the historical estate from their parents Vittorio and Alessandrina, located in the province of Avellino, in the area of Salza Irpina. The estate, a beautiful 18th-century farmhouse that was once a hunting lodge of the Caracciolo Prince, is surrounded by gently rolling, breezy hillsides.
The goal of the three siblings was to produce wines from the most widespread native varieties in Irpinia, like Fiano, Greco, Aglianico and Coda di volpe, and promote the value of cultural and regional traditions. So, they decided to plant vineyards and, in 1986 they produced their first vintage.
While the Irpinia wine underwent a period of strong growth, with the important accreditation of the DOCG Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Taurasi and the growth of a significant quality wine sector, the oenological project of the Di Meo siblings evolved very quickly. Besides the production of wines in the best areas of the province, they started the production of liquors, spirits and other food Irpinian products as well, and in a few years the company was recognized as one of the most prestigious production companies in the region.
Today the company is run by Roberto, Oenologist, Winemaker and Sales Manager, and by Generoso, promoter of “Di Meo Vini ad Arte,” a project to enhance and spread worldwide the cultural heritage of Irpinia and Campania: after all, like wine, this is a way to celebrate the family link with the territory and offer its history to contemporary taste.
