Nifo

For three generations, Nifo Sarrapochiello has been an integral part of Campania's Viticulture, finding its home in the historic town of Ponte, with roots that trace back to ancient Roman times. Today, the custodian of this rich winemaking tradition is Lorenzo Nifo Sarrapochiello, a man who wears two hats: owner and winemaker. His mission is a harmonious blend of unwavering respect for tradition and a commitment to innovation. Since 1998, Nifo Sarrapochiello has proudly embraced the principles of organic farming, with each grape harvest conducted by hand, a labor of love. The result is a collection of wines that reflect not only the terroir but also a dedication to environmental sustainability and consumer well-being. Nestled at the foot of Mount Pèntime, the Nifo Sarrapochiello winery covers 18 hectares of vineyards and olive groves, ranging in elevation from 200 to 450 meters above sea level. This idyllic setting lies at the heart of the Aglianico del Taburno (DOCG) and the Sannio (DOP).
