The legend says:
The God Bacchus once, pretending to be someone else, asked hospitality to an old man called Falerno. This man offered him a bed where to sleep, food and milk. Bacchus, moved by his generosity, transformed the milk in wine and gave birth to one of the most legendary wine: Falerno del Massico
One insciption found in a Pub in Pompeii quotes:
“With one ass you can get a good Wine, with two asses you can get the best, with four asses you can get a Falernum”
The Falerno del Massico is produced at the slopes of the Mount Massico in the Campania Region, not so far from the border with Lazio. It is a volcanic area since the Mount Massico is the result of the eruption of the Volcano Roccamonfina. The mineral flavour of the white Wines is with pleasure highlighted by the volcanic soil.
The White Wines are Falanghina 100% whereas the Falerno del Massico DOC is produced with 80% Aglianico Wine and 20% Piedirosso, a local Grape. The best producers of Falerno del Massico are, for us Villa Matilde, Masseria Felicia and Rampaniuci.
The visit of the Holding Masseria Felicia can be held in different Languages if prebooked in advance. We can organize a Tour in English, Swedish, German, French and Spanish. The Holding is family driven and has 5 hectares vineyards and 4 Hectares with Olive Trees for the production of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
We can organize the transportation from Rome, Naples, Caserta, Amalfi Coast and also organize a Guided Tour of Pompeii. This is the perfect Experience if you want to explore the fascinating World of Ancient Rome and taste their favourite Wine.
