The company was born driven by the courage and the deepest will of a family linked to its land, which made the earth a mission. A generous territory, Puglia offers to careful and occasional visitors the taste and the image of the past that still strongly surrounds the present
The love for the land of Puglia is our propeller, that fuel that burns in the head and in the hands and produces desire to produce. We extract gold from the earth, precious berries that we transform into an authentic nectar, the son of the sun and the wind that blows from the sea.
The biological method responds fully to the philosophy of Podere29, to its desire to create products that are faithful to the principles of respect for the earth.
The company was born from the will of Antonio Pagano who had a vision of the future in the redevelopment of a pre-existing enological reality of great cultural and historical impact: Il Falerno del Massico.
The vineyards extend over two terraces, in Casale di Carinola (CE), an indescribable and relaxing panorama, where we can glimpse Ischia, Procida and the Gulf of Gaeta.
The vines are located at a height between 270 m and 300 m above sea level, behind the extinct volcano of Roccamonfina and in an area from the sea at about 5 km. The high thermal excursion or the significant temperature difference that occurs between the day (26 ° -27 °) and the night (7 ° -8 °), makes it possible to obtain particularly fragrant, fresh and complex wines on the nose.
The composition of the soil is predominantly volcanic, evidenced by the presence of elements such as pozzolana, small volcanic lapilli and stones that are collected and accumulated at the edges of the cultivable clearings. From the mixed volcanic, tufaceous and calcareous soil it achieves a good aging potential and a great minerality that distinguish the wine produced by limiting the need for chloride bisulfites. The clay has the property of retaining water and slowly ceding it to the roots, this is reason why there is no irrigation system.
Casteani – Viticoltori in Maremma
Deep down in the green hills, hearth of Tuscan Maremma and not far away from the Tyrrenian Sea and its healthy influence, there is Tenuta Casteani, a Winery and Wine Resort which was in wishes and thoughts of Engineer Mario Pelosi, oenologist and sommelier master class, who personally follows his growth and development with care and attention and surrounded by his experienced staff. Company’s mission is deeply aimed at respecting nature around and first of all at the evaluation of the Terroir.
That’s why at Casteani they cultivate with passion and professionalism mainly local grapes, like Vermentino for the whites and Sangiovese for the reds. Especially the Sangiovese enhances the richness of the two winery’s reds: Sessanta and Terra di Casteani that both of them express the company’s character and the wildness of the territory.

The history of this wonderful company begins in 1925 thanks to the great-grandfather Mereu. The company is experiencing the fourth generation of farmers since the great-grandfather’s settlement. Tenuta Corona Ruia has its roots in this unique land, lapped by the sea.
The company is located in Romangia, the Logudoro area of northwestern Sardinia, the most fertile land of the entire island that belonged, in the Middle Ages, to the Giudicato of Torres, of which Porto Torres remembers the vestiges today. The territory is even full of pre-Nuragic history given the numerous testimonies that can still be admired such as: the Domus de Janaas in L’Abbiu, the sacred well of Serra Niedda, the Billelera fountain and Mount Corona Ruia with its Nuraghe.
