The winery Basilisco, since its start in the early 90s, aimed at the highest quality both in the vineyards and in the wine making thus becoming in a short time a pearl in the Southern Italian scenario.
In 2011 Feudi di San Gregorio, the leading winery in the South of Italy and present in the Vulture region for over ten years, decided to start a project reclaiming its ancient tuff stone caves in the “Shesh”, the historic Park of cellars of Barile, and revamping this ancestral context. This move was animated by the firm belief in the uniqueness of this extraordinary viticulture area.
THE HISTORY OF THE CELLARS
The winery Basilisco is located in Via delle Cantine, in a XVIth century noble palace.
The areas of vinification and storage are inside the fascinating caves chosen by Pierpaolo Pasolini to set his movie “Il Vangelo secondo Matteo”.
In the XVth century, several groups of Albanian refugees escaped from Turkish pressure, settled down in some areas of Southern Italy creating proper enclaves which are still existing. Barile is an arbereshe (Italian-Albanian ethnic group) settlement and the dozens caves in the tuff stone, characterizing its landscape, have been dig by the colonists as a shelter.
After the last eruption, 130000 years ago, nature found back its balance giving birth to a terroir with extraordinary features.
Since then, the majestic volcano Vulture vigils above this territory, feeding a simple and spontaneous viticulture, full of small old vineyard “a capanno” (small 2/3 cane “tent”). Our 20 hectares are completely biological.Pierpaolo Sirch, viticulture expert and responsible of our vineyards, manage the property in the belief that through allowing the plants and the soil to reach their balance it is possible to obtain the best fruit with the less work and intrusion.
