Join us on the A16 with Winemaker & Owner Lucio Mastroberardino of Terredora di Paolo for a taste of the Mezzogiorno. The A16, you ask? Why, it’s the autostrada that traverses the center of Campania, known as the “Motorway of Two Seas” connecting the Tyrrhenean coast with the Adriatic, starting outside Naples and passing through Avellino, Taurasi and more.
Let Church Street Wine Cellars & Lucio be your guide to these unique wines! Lucio Mastroberardino belongs to one of Italy’s most illustrious winemaking families. His origins as a winemaker stretch back to the 17th century. Today, his Terredora estate produces some of Southern Italy’s most coveted fine wines.
Terredora di Paolo has been on the forefront of the wine renaissance in Campania since 1978. This is a region that was famous for producing the best wines of the Roman Empire and Terredora di Paolo is committed to re-establishing itself to its former glory. They have been instrumental in reintroducing ancient grape varieties, promoting modern innovation and training the men and women who will be responsible for carrying their vision into the future.
Today, the combination of the celebrated climate, the rich volcanic soils and the top quality local varieties make Campania, and Terredora di Paolo one of the most exciting wine producers of southern Italy.
It is their belief that great wine comes from the balance of natural resources: terrain, varieties used, climate and man’s ability to work with nature. With ample dedication and professionalism Walter Mastroberardino and his children Lucio, Daniela and Paolo, have put this new winery in the elite division of southern Italian wineries.
Even with a plethora of “Top 100“ scores from publications such as Wine Spectator and the like, and Campanian wine production in full affect before Mount Vesuvius buried Pompeii in 79 A.D. has slipped quietly by the radar of all but the “cognoscenti” of the Italian wine renaissance. Come check out the undervalued treasures!
