The Statti family estate, located in Lamezia Terme, boasts a stunning 300 hectares of olive groves, 100 hectares of vineyards, and 50 hectares of citrus groves, while also including areas for cattle breeding. At Statti, they believe that all great wine is born straight from the vineyard, and that is why they devote their time and resources towards care for the land and new innovations and machinery.
Today, and since the 1700s, Antonio and Alberto Statti continue their family’s longstanding tradition and are constantly working towards modern and innovative ways of improving the land.
At the Statti Estate, there are many opportunities to tour their winery, oil mill and cellar, all while trying the oil, milk and wine from the Statti farm and pairing it with local Calabrian specialties.
These activities are offered in both Italian and English.
