Fattoria la Rivolta

In 1997, Paolo Cotroneo partnered with his brother Mario to establish Fattoria La Rivolta. As a third-generation farmer, Paolo immediately adopted organic cultivation methods for their vines, achieving certification from ICEA (Istituto per la Certificazione Etica e Ambientale) in 2001. This family enterprise, involving two sisters and a cousin, manages 29 hectares of vineyards. They hand-harvest to ensure low yields and farm without chemical treatments.


Where The Wines Come From


Natural wine production in Campania, Italy, celebrates the region's ancient winemaking traditions and diverse terroir. Nestled in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius and overlooking the picturesque Bay of Naples, Campania boasts a rich viticultural heritage dating back to antiquity. Here, native grape varieties such as Aglianico, Fiano, and Greco thrive in the region's volcanic soils and Mediterranean climate, yielding wines of remarkable character and complexity. Natural winemakers in Campania embrace a holistic approach to viticulture, prioritizing organic and biodynamic farming methods to nurture healthy vineyards and vibrant ecosystems. In the cellar, they eschew modern additives and manipulation, favoring spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts and minimal sulfur usage. The resulting wines are a reflection of their terroir, with a purity of fruit, lively acidity, and a distinctive volcanic minerality. Whether enjoyed young and vibrant or aged to develop additional depth and nuance, Campanian natural wines offer a captivating expression of the region's ancient winemaking heritage and a true taste of la dolce vita.
