L’ANTICA FATTORIA B&B
Stay at L’Antica Fattoria and you’ll wake up among rows of vines and centuries-old olive trees. This is one of the great terroirs of viticulture in Irpinia, on the hills of the Calore Valley, 500 metres above sea level. This is the heart of the Taurasi DOCG production area, in the municipality of Sant’Angelo all’Esca. L’Antica Fattoria is part of Tenuta Cavalier Pepe, a modern and welcoming winery managed by Milena Pepe.
L’Antica Fattoria consists of two independent apartments, bright and panoramic, and equipped with every comfort. The B&B is ideal for holidaymakers looking for peace and relaxation. Situated in a recently restored country house, L’Antica Fattoria immerses the visitor right into the vineyards of Irpinia. Its strategic position in this cult wine region makes L’Antica Fattoria a destination for food and wine tourism.
A short walk will bring you to the cellars of Tenuta Cavalier Pepe. Here, you can continue your journey with a visit to the vineyards, the winery, the barrel cellar and by tasting the estate’s wines. Those looking for some refreshment should look to La Collina, the gastronomic restaurant located near the estate. The restaurant offers interesting tasting menus and the opportunity to taste typical and authentic local products and dishes from Irpinia

and DOCG of IRPINIA
Thanks to the characteristics of its terroir, such as climate and soil, Irpinia has long been known as a land of viticulture. Irpinia is the proud home of southern Italy’s first DOCG, Taurasi DOCG, elevated in 1993. This promotion was followed by those of two historically significant Irpinian white wines, Fiano di Avellino DOCG and Greco di Tufo DOCG. In addition to boasting three of southern Italy’s most prestigious DOCGs, Irpinia has many notable DOCs, including Coda di Volpe DOC and Falanghina DOC.
