Refiano, Fiano di Avellino Docg

Fiano di Avellino is produced from the homonymous grape and derives from the Latin word apis meaning bees that attracted by the sweetness of the grapes. The South of Italy, called “Magna Graecia”, was the cradle of our civilization and the land where the Greeks cultivated the vines that produced the wines that were served at their banquets. On the territory of Avellino, the wine, called Fiano, was produced for the kings of Ancient Greece consumption.
