La Molara’s History and Terroir

We are located in the heart of the province of Avellino, in Irpinia, a geographical area suitable for the production of important DOC and DOCG, a territory that extends over the central-eastern part of Campania, and which does not have an outlet on the sea, but is spread over areas mainly mountainous. Here is Luogosano , the ancient Locossano, where the La Molara farm has its own seven hectares of vineyards, which overlook the valley of the Calore river, a land that has always given wines of great value.

Established in 2002, the first harvest carried out in 2001, the Azienda Agricola La Molara currently has, as its partner, the Neapolitan lawyer Riccardo Morelli with his family. 

The Philosophy of the wines of La Molara

The Company avails itself of the presence and collaboration of Professor Pasquale Di Stasio , Head of the Cellar, and Giovanni Soriano , Head of Product and Operations in the Vineyard. The team is completed by Antonio Pesce , Wine – Maker, and Maria Rosaria di Stasio .

The plant is completely organized to carry out the entire production cycle: destemmer, soft pressing machine, pumps and filters. The fermentation and storage tanks are made of stainless steel and the red wine is also completed in woods of various sizes (tonneau – barrique – barrels) but all of French oak.

A complete bottling and labeling line completes the equipment. The soils on which the vineyards of the company rest are mainly mixed-clayey; the planting density is 6000 plants per hectare, with both guyot and spurred cordon training systems.
