Molise DOC is a global appellation which was created in 1998. The appellation has red, rosé and white wines and is the only DOC in Molise that produces sparkling wines. This appellation has a diverse topography, which lends itself well to vine growing.
The first testimonies concerning wine-growing in the Molise region date from documents from the 19th century, where it is question of the sale in Abruzzo of wine from this region and the types of cultivation adopted. Molise DOC is found in most of the municipalities of the “provincia” of Campobasso and that of Isernia.
Be that as it may, the vines have found in this region a favorable environment and climate, thus making it possible to develop a productive sector of a certain interest. The hillside vineyards provide excellent sun exposure, morainic and calcareous soils and proximity to the Adriatic sea, all of which allow the grapes to flourish.
