In 2004, in order to revive an ancient viticulture tradition, was born S. Francesco farm in Tramonti, the green heart of the Amalfi Coast. The farm extends over about seven hectares and produces wines from the grapes of three local historical families: the Bove, the D’Avino, the Giordano. The modern highly technological equipment of the cellar was completed by the beginning of 2005. It is set in the ancient estate belonging to the Di Palma Family, the actual producers, who avail of the expert professional advice of dr. Carmine Valentino from Avellino.
Four hectares are covered with centennial vineyards made up of tintore e piedirosso for the production of the Red Tramonti Wine. Two hectares and half are cultivated with Falanghina, Biancolella and Pepella for the production of the White Tramonti Wine. The half a hectare left is actually utilized for a genetic selection of Aglianico and Piedirosso.
All the vineyards are characterized by high density plant and situated on steep -sloped terraced lands between 300 and 500 meters above sea -level.
The output is calculated around 70 / 90 quintals for hectare. One of the symbols of the farm is a butterfly, which underlines the great attention paid to the preservation and the protection of the environment, in accordance with the Regional Plans for the reduction of the use of phytochemistry.
