Serracavallo

Overview

The Serracavallo farm is located in the municipality of Bisignano overlooking the Crati valley, approximately 35 km from Cosenza. It covers 55 hectares of land, 30 of which are vineyards and 10 of which are olive groves. The owner, Demetrio Stancati, began renewing the vineyards in 1995 by carefully selecting indigenous vines that have long existed on the farm, such as Magliocco dolce and Pecorello and has planted new international varieties of vines such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

A combination of their position at 600 m above sea level, the strong day-night temperature range, the nature of granitic sand on the ground, the south-west exposure of the vines, a new modern wine cellar equipped with the most modern technologies and barrel room for aging wines guarantees a top quality product. Only natural and real grapes are processed on the farm with a production of about 150,000 bottles. The company philosophy is to use blends between native and international varieties of vines in the base of the wines, while, gaining importance in it’s selection, the percentage of international vines decreases until it disappears completely. After the 2012 harvest, Serracavallo became part of the DOP Terre di Cosenza, consistent with all the investments made and the experimentation on native vines.

The farm offers company visits, guided wine tastings in combination with local products and tours of the vineyard upon reservation.
