Campania is one of Italy's oldest wine region. Vineyards are located in southern Italy around the city of Naples. Rustic and tannic red wines based on Aglianico requiring ageing are left over by new producers. The use of new techniques enhance the quality of the production. White wine varieties like Fiano and Greco produce refreshing wines.

The soils in Campania are extrusive igneous rocks. The main soils are soils with more or less derived from volcanic materials, then one can find some soils with clay and iron oxides accumulation, or even alluvial soils. Campania is unique in that many of its vines are planted on their own rootstocks. Phylloxera pest simply cannot survive in Campania’s volcanic soils.
