Located in the heart of Ravello, to enjoy the best of the Amalfi Coast wine production.
The winery “A. Sammarco” was born in 1967 from the constant commitment of Claudio Sammarco’s family to enhance their territory, and give value to the lands owned by his father Raffaele in the 1980s in Ravello, 365 meters above sea level.
The company is named after Claudio’s wife, Andreina.
They have guaranteed the production of high quality wines with unique characteristics from the very beginning.
The tradition of Cantine A. Sammarco was then handed down in the hard-working hands of the sons Maria Grazia, Raffaele and Francesco, who undertook to enhance the company to the point of making it a leader in the production and marketing of local wines on the Amalfi Coast.
Cantine A.Sammarco, through the competent work of winemaking and the precious collaboration with qualified oenologists, has given results that enchant those who love to taste the best of the wine production of Ravello and the neighboring sub-zones Tramonti and Furore. The goal is, indeed, to favor the native varieties of Campania region and in particular of the coast which have, for about twenty years now, conquered levels of extraordinary importance.
The sea breeze, the fruitfulness of the coastal lands, first with the spring warmth and then with the heat of the summer months, contribute to enhancing the quality of the local grapes.
With the special grapes that grow and ripen in terraced vineyards located about 400 meters above sea level, Cantine A. Sammarco obtains its DOC wines.
The lands are no longer owned by the family, but the grapes are purchased directly from small farmers spread over three production areas: Ravello, Furore and Tramonti.
The grapes of the aforementioned areas are, for the white wines, Falanghina, Biancolella and Ginestrella and, for the red wines, Piedirosso and Aglianico.
About 45 tons of grapes are transformed into wine every year.
The white wines are processed and marketed within the following year; the red wines, on the other hand, require passage in barrels, barriques and/or stationary steel tanks, therefore they are put on sale not from 3 years after production.
