Cantine Olivella

  Cantine Olivella is located in Sant’Anastasia, a small village nearby Naples at the foothill of the Vesuvio. The winery took its name from an ancient source of water “Olivella Source” near which, in 1974, archeologists discovered a fragment of a Roman wine jar with engraved the name of an ancient wine maker “Sex Cati Festi” which became the symbol of Olivella’s bottles. Cantine Olivella was one of the first winery to register as producer of “Catalanesca” a grape variety originally from Catalonia, Spain, which finds in the volcanic soil a perfect environment for a perfect maturation. Along with the Catalanesca, Cantine Olivella, produces other wonderful grapes varieties as Piedirosso, Aglianico, Caprettone and Olivella.
