Cantina Del Vesuvio Winery

Experience our unique wines, born in the shadow of the volcano.

In our Lacryma Christi wines there is more than just grapes:

The land: visit our 16 hectares of vineyards, planted in the volcanic soil on the slopes of Vesuvius.

The people: here is Maurizio Russo, the youngest of this historic family of winemakers.

The work: see how our family has been working every day on these hills since 1930 to create a winery that combines the rigors of organic production with the warmth of Italian hospitality. We only produce a limited number of bottles per year, all sold directly from our wine shop.

We look to the future while remaining rooted to our past

In 1930 Giovanni Russo founded his small family winery on the volcanic slopes of Vesuvius.

At the time, wine was transported to Naples by horse-drawn carts, where small rural winemakers sold their wines to large merchants, who then supplied shops and restaurants around the city.

Giovanni’s son, Maurizio, began working in the family business at a young age, starting as a humble field worker.

After years of work in the cellar, Maurizio decided to make a change: 18 years ago he opened his doors for visits and tastings, invested in improving the quality of the wines, and limited the distribution exclusively to the cellar.
