San Giovanni

The Azienda Agricola San Giovanni, home to Mario Corrado, Ida Budetta and their children since 1993, sits on the Punta Tresino. This breathtaking cape faces northwest towards the Amalfi Coast, and is located a few miles north of the tourist destination of Paestum, with its famed Greco-Roman ruins. The 4 hectares of organic vineyards lie on terraced chalky/clay slopes overlooking the sea, surrounded by Mediterranean scrub, and adjacent to the national park of the Cilento. Power is generated by a photovoltaic system. The winery has won both the coveted Snail and Slow Wine awards in the Slow Wine guide.
