Cantine Artese

The story of the Cantine Artese winery begins with a deep love for viticulture which dates back three generations and continues on to this day. This winery combines its passion for the creation of indigenous wines with new developments in wine-tourism to create a truly unique Calabrian experience.

Overview

Cantine Artese is located in Porto Salvo, in the Vibo Valentia province of Calabria. First founded in 2009 by Antonio Artese, the spirit of Cantie Artese was birthed by Antonio’s father Gregorio Artese has been cultivating a small vineyard and other agricultural fields since the 1950s. His loving care for nature, his vineyards and the surrounding landscape was easily passed onto his son Antonio, who then founded Cantine Artese.

The vineyards are located in the hilly area of ​​Madama di Zambrone, about 150 meters above sea level, with south-western sun exposure. From different parts of the vineyard it is possible to admire the clear blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea and its beautiful beaches. The sea breeze and the microclimate that is created around the vine is ideal for the growth of Cantine Artese’s grapes. The clay-like soil is fertile and has a balanced supply of minerals, characteristics which have allowed for the growth of high quality wines in the region for centuries dating back to ancient times. The winery is located in the splendid setting of the Costa degli Dei which translates to the “Coast of the Gods. More specifically, the vineyards are located a few kilometers from the Pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea, Tropea, a very popular destination for tourists from all over the world.

Cantine Artese are committed to celebrating the local indigenous and historic wines from the region of Calabrian. With their wineries in Zambrone, one of the winery’s main objectives is to recover Zibibbo, a historic grape variety indigenous to the terroir, but has been abandoned in local winemaking for several years. Along with that, their priority has always been to increase the quality of their wines which are all from the Calabria IGT wine appellation.
