Even in today’s Lonely Planet age of modern travel, the stunning Calabria region of southern Italy remains relatively untouched – visually beautiful, but a historically poor area where infrastructure and tourist facilities are (many would say thankfully) still rather lacking.

The Librandi family have been vineyard owners here for centuries, combining a distinctly contemporary approach to winemaking with a desire to preserve the viticultural heritage of the Cirò coastal region in which they are based.

Work with academics and consultants, most notably acclaimed viticultural expert Professor Attilio Scienza, is aimed at recovering and understanding ancient grape varieties which are, in many cases, the legacy of centuries dominated by Greek culture.

You can taste the results in a range of wines that expresses the distinct character of varietals such as Greco and Gaglioppo, sourced from 230 hectares of Librandi vineyards, through fresh, clean, modern winemaking.
