Welcome to Travel Italy; Wine tasting in Irpinia, Italy – Consorzio Tutela dei Vini dell’Irpinia (Teaser) – another installment of On The Road Edition hosted by Stevie Kim. This is a teaser video on the Irpinia wine area, narrated by Fanny Breuil. First, the team visited the beautiful Loreto Abbey in Campania, Italy. They tasted a liquor originally produced by the Benedictine monks, 40 proof, but very minty and fresh!
Their journey then continued into the vineyards of Irpinia, in Campania. There they discovered the winery, vineyards, and food. They also took part in a masterclass and tasting to learn more about the main 3 grapes of the region: Fiano, Greco di Tufo and, Aglianico.
The Consortium “Tutela dei Vini dell’Irpinia” was established as a voluntary, non-profit association, in 2003. Less than 50 kilometres from Naples, thanks to the conformation of its territory, Irpinia is a land devoted to the production of fine wines. The peculiar orography of the territory results in particular microclimates, varying from area to area, which allow different types of wines to be produced. In fact, Irpinia, today, is the province in Campania with the highest concentration of vineyards and can boast the presence of three DOCG wines: Taurasi, Greco di Tufo and Fiano di Avellino. The mission of the Consortium is to protect and enhance these wines, vine products, vineyards of Irpinia as a a national cultural heritage.
