about this subregion

Nestled off the Sorrentine Peninsula in Italy's Tyrrhenian Sea, the island of Capri harbors more than just picturesque landscapes and azure waters. It is home to the distinctive Capri DOC, an emblem of viticultural mastery that captures the essence of the island's unique environment. With its temperate maritime climate, Capri benefits from abundant sunlight and gentle sea breezes, creating an unparalleled terroir that encourages the growth of some truly exceptional grape varieties.

At the heart of Capri's vinous offerings is the Piedirosso. As the most widely planted red grape on the island, it has earned a reputation for producing wines with an expressive profile, blending notes of red fruits with subtle hints of herbs and spices. The terroir of Capri allows Piedirosso to achieve a balance of acidity and tannins, resulting in wines that can both be enjoyed young or aged gracefully.

The whites of Capri are equally remarkable. Falanghina and Greco lead the charge as the predominant white grape varieties. Falanghina, with its zesty citrus and floral notes, evokes the freshness of a Mediterranean summer, while Greco contributes with its rich texture and flavors reminiscent of ripe orchard fruits.

Together, these grape varieties make the Capri DOC a beacon for wine enthusiasts seeking the purest expression of the island’s environmental harmony. As you savor a glass, it's almost as if you're drinking in a piece of Capri itself, with all its beauty, history, and sun-kissed charm.
