History


The estate of Rocca Dei Sanniti was established in March of 1967. The winery presents a proprietary structure and a family business management. It is currently run by Maurizion Zollo, after being passed down through many generations. The estate was established by his grandfather who owned the farms back in 1911.




The Process


The estate is made up of vineyards, the ancient farmland and a Villa Carel, the structure where the property currently lives. Benevento, the province of Campania, is most suited to the cultivation of vines and the production of wine. The vineyard has been joined by other territory that is perfectly suited to protect the vines by the controlled denomination of origin for the best quality setting.
