The Fiano vines for the Pietracalda wine are organically grown in the Feudi di San Gregorio vineyards in Sorbo Serpico in Irpinia near Avellino in the center of Campania, some 40 km. east of Napoli. The Irpinia region is very varied, with a succession of mountains, hills and plains with rivers and streams in between.
