 Feudi di San Gregorio is located in Campania and is the main winery in southern Italy.  Founded in 1986, today Feudi is owned by the Capaldo family and produces 3.5 million bottles every year from its 600 hectares of vineyards.

 The winery is located in the oldest part of Irpinia, and its production philosophy aims to re-launch and renew wine production through a modern and quality approach.  Where many producers in Italy have uprooted ancient vines in favor of international varieties, Feudi has remained faithful to the local heritage by continuing to cultivate native vines such as the white Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino, Falanghina, and the red Aglianico.

 Today, the production includes a wide range of white and red wines, including the pride of their production, the Irpinia Aglianico DOC Serpico, a full-bodied red wine from the historic Dal Re vineyard.
