Geographically, the cultivation of vines in Campania is favored by the presence of a surface that is over 50% hilly and over 30% mountainous. The lowland belt represents just 15% of the area of the region. A range of extraordinary white and red wines , among which the 4 DOCGs (Taurasi, Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino, Aglianico del Taburno) and the 19 DOCs stand out, among which we want to mention Ischia doc, Costa d'Amalfi doc and Falanghina del Sannio doc.
