PRODUCER

GUARDIENSE

La Guardiense is a co-operative at Guardia Sanframondi near Benevento in Campania. There are now some 1,000 members, owning vineyards on excellent plots in the 40km long valley and slopes round La Guardia.

In 2006, they revolutionised their winemaking and cellarage with the arrival of celebrated oenologist Riccardo Cottarella and now bottle their very best wines, of which the Falanghina and Greco are the two that we have selected for our portfolio.
