Maltonauta Srl

Maltonauta is a Calabrian beer company located in Barricaia, in the center of Saracena.


Founded in 2017, thanks to the hard work and experience of Giuseppe Salvator Grosso Ciponte (homebrewer and qualified beer taster) and Marco Longo (experienced professional in the craft industry), the two were able to fulfill their passion of creating a successful business.

They call themselves a “craft brewery rent” with the goal of creating their own craft beers, using Giuseppe’s recipes and produced in the best Calabrian breweries.
