Wine Research Team: Villa Matilde

For over half a century, Villa Matilde, a premium wine producer, has exclusively offered high-quality wines from the region of Campania, from vineyards in that region’s finest growing areas: the areas of upper Caserta, the Sannio near Benevento, and Irpinia.

Absolute quality, love for tradition, and respect for the environment are the components of a credo that inspires activities deeply rooted in those traditions yet at the same time always in step with technological innovation and new developments, the fruit of unceasing research.

The history of Villa Matilde began in the 1960s, when Francesco Paolo Avallone, a lawyer with a passion for ancient wines and an abiding interest in the “vinum Falernum” described in the accounts of Pliny and in the poetry of Virgil, Martial, and Horace, decided to bring back to life that legendary wine, which had disappeared in the early 20th century.

Today, the winery is managed by his children, Francesco Paolo, Maria Ida, and Salvatore Avallone, who have single-mindedly dedicated themselves to their father’s dream and winemaking project. They not only cherish an important patrimony but direct their gaze outwards as well: from the Ager Falernus to the provinces of Benevento and Avellino, with new plantings, new projects, and new wines that express the self-confident identity of Campania Felix
