About The Producer
Caiazzo – Terre del Volturno
Alepa is a small artisanal winery located in the Caiatine Hills around the city of Caserta. Here’s where antique grape varieties like Pallagrello Bianco have taken home.
Paola Riccio runs the 2.5ha winery farming organically and with little to no intervention in the cellar. The wines are based on the local grape varietals Pallagrello Bianco and Nero, Greco, Falanghina and a tiny bit of Cabernet Sauvignon.
