Vesuvio Lacryma Christi D.O.C.

"A land that blends legend and history"

According to legend, a slice of paradise fell into the Bay of Naples when Lucifer was cast our.
Bereft at the loss of heaven's most precious angel, Christ wept and vines sprung from the ground where his tears fell. The wine the ancients made from those vines called Lacryma Christi, or Tears of Christ.

Our Products

We have spent more than 90 years creating products that embody the thoughtfulness of organic production and the authenticity of southern Italy. Cantina Del Vesuvius adopted organic winemaking methods in 1996. Still today, we only use organic fertilizer on the sandy, volcanic soil and treat the vines exclusively with natural products like copper sulfate and sulfur. Our wines are free of added sulfites and certified organic.

Our Family

Sharing our organic wines and gourmet specialities produced with passion in this historic land is our mission.

A bridge between the past and future

Giovanni Russo founded this small family-run winery between the two World Wars in 1930. At the time, Cantina Del Vesuvio's wine was transported via horse-drawn wagons from the rural vineyards on the volcanic slopes of Mount Vesuvius to Naples. Once in the city, Giovanni would sell his wares to wine merchants who supplied local cafés and restaurants.
Maurizio Russo, Giovanni's son, worked his way up in the family business from field hand to owner and operator over decades, investing in improving the quality of the wine and limiting its sale exclusively to the winery shop. He also took the stel of opening the winery to tours and tasting about 25 years ago.

SUPER!

Climbed Mount Vesuvius first and then visited Cantina del Vesuvio for lunch and wine tasting. Food and wine excellent and well worth the visit! Have recently purchased bottles online and will be making further purchases in the future. Highly Recommended!

Cheers Vesuvio

I have visited Cantina del Vesuvio while touring with my students (I'm a college professor). [...] Most in the group purchased a case of wine and shipped them home - they arrived very quickly.

Beautiful Winery

We visited last October as part of a tour. We had a fabulous meal and the wine was delicious. We absolutely loved the Red Wine Vinegar so much so we ordered 5 bottles to keep us going for a while. They winged their way to Witney last week and already our salads and meals are tasting great.

Always Great!

Always well done! Go and sit near the fire and enjoy the food and impeccable service.  Lastly, take a tour of the vineyard and take a photo with Vesuvius in the background. Will go back again and again!

Delightful tour, delicious meal and great wines!

Spent a wonderful day! We toured the winery and sat down to a delicious home cooked meal, accompanied by one of the Cantina's wines. We liked their wine so much that we have purchased it through their website. It was a delightful day!
