Cantine Greco

Located in the lovely seaside town of Torretta di Crucoli, bordering Cirò and Cariati, the Cantina Greco is a beautiful winery surrounded by nature and featuring stunning panoramas onto the mountains and nearby sea.

The Cantina Greco story begins in the 1950s when Natale Greco began studying agriculture and started to work with his mother on her fields in the mountain town of Terravecchia in Calabria.

From her, he learned about and inherited her dedication and passion for their family’s land and honed his agricultural skills for growing olive groves and vineyards. Natale then moved to Toretta to expand his agriculture business; in Toretta, he was the first to build oil mills and grow wine in the area, which he began successfully selling to larger producers. Eventually, the entire Greco family got involved in the business with Natale’s passion for agriculture and the land being passed on to his children.

Over the years, the winery grew with new mills, vineyards and technologies. With over 60 years of experience, the family decided in 2017 to create their own brands of Calabria IGT and Cirò DOC wines, with red and rosé wines made from the gaglioppo grape variety and white wines made from Greco Bianco grapes.
