In 1915, Ippolito Spadafora decided to make bulk wine from grapes cultivated by farmers in the Donnici Hills. Through the generations, the business shifted to producing higher quality wines while maintaining the family’s traditional production methods. The story of the Spadafora Family’s devotion to wine continues to this day with a devotion to the continued improvement of the quality of the wines produced.
Located near the small town of Donnici between the Crati and Savuto rivers, the area is also a sub-region of the Terre di Cosenza DOC, well-suited for the growth of the Magliocco grape variety, which is used in many Spadafora wines. Other native varieties are used to make their wines, such as Greco, Mantonico and Malvasia. The winery’s commitment to quality and taste has made Spadafora wines have been successful both in Italy and abroad.
