THE DOC AND DOCG OF IRPINIA

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.

  • TAURASI DOCG
  • FIANO DI AVELLINO DOCG
  • GRECO DI TUFO DOCG
