Campi Valerio was founded in 2004. Although a relatively young winery the vineyards themselves were established back in the 17th century by Prince Giovanni Pignatelli, a Neapolitan nobleman, who resided in Monteroduni, Molise.
Since it's founding Campi Valerio has gone from strength to strength expanding its estates. Growing from a single vineyard to the five it holds today, allowing them to produce increasingly diverse and complex wines.
Despite this rapid growth, Campi Valerio has been able to remain true to their Philosophy of producing wines that represent their terroir and promote the regions indigenous grapes. At the same time, they have been able to combine this respect for the old with new techniques to create some truly exciting and unique wines.

How we met Antonio
We were first introduced to Campi Valerio by a very good friend, Loriana of Molise Cuisine. Not long after we arrived in Italy she took us to Campi Valerio's winery for a tour and to sample their wines. Needless to say, after the tour, we picked up a few bottles to take back home with us.
From that point onwards we usually had a couple of bottles from Campi Valerio in our cellar. When it came time to select wines for Vine & Soul we had a good idea which we would like to use to introduce the English market to this vineyard.
Antonio & his team have been keen supporters of our efforts to bring Molise wine to the UK market. It has been a pleasure to partner with them and we look forward to bringing more of Campi Valerio's wines to you in the future.
