Today in the 27 hectares of vineyards, Donnachiara cultivates Aglianico, Fiano and Greco di Tufo. These grapes were brought to Campania a millennia ago by the ancient Greeks and spread to many areas of Southern Italy. Our soil provide the best results for DonnaChiara wines expressing the great quality of these grapes with thanks to the great expertise of the technicians in the cellar. Infact the winery has the most advanced technologies available today. Innovative tools for temperature control, vinification and aging of the great red grape of Aglianico and the fragrant well structured white grapes Fiano and Greco.
