Feudi di San Gregorio is a winery in the Campania region of Italy. It was founded in 1986 by Vincenzo Ercolino, his wife and his two brothers, but the latter subsequently left the business. ‘Vincenzo Ercolino ceded his title of President to Edoardo Narduzzi. Ercolino with his wife and two brothers ploughed millions in to the estate in the mountains east of Naples, while never really making clear where the money had come from, nor why the two brothers left in unexplained circumstances. Under Ercolino, Feudi came to rival Mastroberardino of nearby Atripalda but didn’t really make terroir-driven wines,’ (abridged from Belfrage, N & Ziliani, F: 2007).
The estate is now under the direction of Antonio Capaldo. The main wines are Fiano di Avellino DOCG and Greco di Tufo DOCG in white, and Taurasi DOCG in red (Aglianco is the key red grape here, with a focus on local biotypes). Feudi di San Gregorio also owns other wineries in Italy, such as Campo alle Comete in the Bolgheri DOC, Tuscany.
