Tradition

“Cauda Vulpium”

“Fox Tail”

- Plinio il Vecchio, Naturalis Historia

The territory included in the province of Naples has a wine tradition that goes back centuries. The first Greek settlers realized the enormous potential of the land, made fertile by the perfect climate and the purely volcanic soil. Since then, the cultivation of the vine has been a pillar for the economy in Campania surviving and bringing wealth for centuries to all peoples who lived here. The emperors and high-ranking Romans had a predilection for wines from Campania, as attested by several authors and numerous archaeological finds.

Among the many species of grapes, Coda di Volpe represents the witness of a well-defined territory, the volcanic area on the slopes of Vesuvius. Its unique flavour derives only from the extraordinary composition of the soil, and the climate of Neapolitan plain. Moreover, Pompeii in Roman times was the main commercial center for wine in Campania.

The name "Coda di Volpe" (Fox tail) derives from the particular shape of the ripe bunch, with curved apex to recall the tail of a fox.
