|The Bisceglia Estate is an important and dynamic winery offering a range of top quality products. Founded in 2001 by Mario Bisceglia who, after many years spent in the corporate food industry, decided to go back his land to begin this venture. His goal is to continually produce world class wines made with both indigenous and international varietals grown in the Basilicata region.
The Bisceglia Estate is situated on the lower slopes of the extinct volcano, Mount Vulture, in the splendid district of Lavello. This old farming community is officially recognized as "Wine Town" in the Basilicata Region of Southern Italy. The winery itself was designed by internationally-acclaimed architects Hikaru Mori and Domenico Santomauro and has state of the art winemaking facilities as well as aging cellars.
The Estate extends over uncontaminated hillside rich in flora and fauna, characterized by a Mediterranean microclimate. A natural balance of temperature changes characterizes this terroir, conferring remarkable fertility to calcareous and clay loam soils. The Bisceglia is comprised of forty hectares of vines in the heart of the Aglianico DOC appellation, which include the local varieties Aglianico, Moscato and Fiano as well as a selection of international vine varieties.
