San Salvatore 1988
Our company was founded in the heart of the Cilento National Park , an ancient land , rich in history and tradition, never touched by intensive agriculture . The winery is located in the same area where the Ancient Greeks began the colonization of Magna Grecia and where for the first time brought Aglianico , Fiano and Greco grapes. Their vineyards were located in the same places where nowadays are located ours.
Our philosophy is to produce wines respecting the nature and traditions and in our products carry the history and flavors of this land.
Despite being a very young company, the first harvest was in fact in 2009 , San Salvatore is very tradition-bound peasant Cilento , respects the time and methods , combining them with the use of the latest technologies , thus favoring vocations of the land and nature of the place .
Azienda Agricola San Salvatore has been certified organic by the European Union and adopts exclusively biological processes and biodynamic preparations . The company size is about 110 hectares, 23.5 with vineyards , the rest for olive groves , orchards, vegetable gardens and woodland, in order to maintain a natural balance in the earth. The vineyards are two, the first one and largest, is located in Cannito area, at the foot of Mount Calpazio that protects it from the elements, with a south-southwest exposure towards the sea ( not far ), which allows it to be kissed from the sun throughout the day and be caressed by the sea breeze. The second , also facing south- southwest , is in Stio Cilento, in the very heart of the national park, 500 meters above the sea, an altitude that was a challenge, but where we can cultivate very precious grapes.
For this respect for nature, we minimize pollution and environmental impact, so for the boxes of our wines we only use recycled paper and we have build on the roof of the cellar a photovoltaic panels system that make us virtually autonomous, and reduce Co2 emissions in the air of about 6,800 Kg /A.
