In the early 80s, Erminia, Generoso and Roberto Di Meo acquired the historical estate from their parents Vittorio and Alessandrina, located in the province of Avellino, in the area of Salza Irpina. The estate, a beautiful 18th-century farmhouse that was once a hunting lodge of the Caracciolo Prince, is surrounded by mild and breezy hillsides. The goal of the three brothers was to produce wines from the most widespread native varieties in Irpinia, like Fiano, Greco, Aglianico and Coda di volpe, and promote the value of cultural and regional traditions. So, they decided to plant vineyards and, in 1986 they started producing the first set of wines of the family: this is the moment that winery Di Meo was born. While the Irpinia wine underwent a period of strong growth, with the important accreditation of the DOCG Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo and Taurasi and the growth of a significant quality wine sector, the oenological project of the Di Meos Brothers evolved very quickly: besides the production of wines in the best areas of the province, they started the production of liquors, spirits and other food irpinian products as well, and in a few years the company was definitely set up as one of the most prestigious production companies in the region.
