Terre del Principe (The prince’s land).
Peppe Mancini abandoned his life long profession as a lawyer to follow his passion and produce wine. When asked why, his responses were: A love for Wine.
A dream shared with Manuela, his beloved wife. The memories of his grandfather who carried him around on his shoulders, through the vineyards, pointing out the vines of Pallagrello and Casavecchia. The faces of the local farmers who grew grapes.
Today, Peppe and Manuela dedicate their lives to these grape varieties which were nearly extinct and today are celebrating a glorious renaissance.
