Client Overview

Cantina Del Vesuvio winery is located in Naples, Italy on the foothills of Mt. Vesuvius. The Russo family started the winery back in 1948 and are among the first wineries in southern Italy to open their doors to visitors. Today, they are one of the most popular wineries in Southern Italy, offering wine tastings, cellar tours and even cooking classes. Most of the visitors they receive are from the United States.
