Baccellieri

Overview

Azienda Agricola Baccellieri is a family run winery located in the small town of Bianco in Calabria, the South of Italy, with vineyards overlooking the Ionian Sea. Mariolina Baccellieri is the owner of the Baccellieri Farm, a family-run business, that produces a variety of different wines as well as citrus fruits, bergamot and oil. The business has continued to focus on the cultivation of the Nerello Calabrese, Mantonico and Greco Bianco types of grape vineyards and Mariolina Baccellieri has proudly followed in her father Vincenzo’s footsteps.

In recent years, the company has shifted its focus, efforts and resources towards vineyard plantations, in particular the Greco’s vineyard. The Greco vineyards experienced a sharp decline in the last decade and was left behind by many farmers in the region. The Baccellieri Farm, committed to its objective of producing an authentic “handmade wine” and preserving it’s excellence, has decided to revive this historic wine with help from the C.A.C.I.B. which is an agricultural initiative in the Calabrian region.
