La Guardiense, Campanhia

The farming co-operative, La Guardiense, was founded over 60 years ago by 33 farsighted, collaborative farmers.

Today membership has grown to nearly 1,000, but still only managing a total of about 1,500 hectares meaning that the fruit comes from a large selection of very small family owned vineyards.

The winery is situated in the Santa Lucia area of Guardia Sanframondi in the very heart of the southern Italian province of Benevento. The land is full of undulating hills and expansive plains each helping create micro-climates protecting the vines from the greatest excesses of the local heat and cold.
