Mathieu-Gosztyla is a small champagne house located in Baslieux-sous-Chatillon. Originally from Poland, Albert Gosztyla and companion Veuve Régnier planted the first vines on the land. Albert’s granddaughter, Wanda Gostyla, and her husband, Gilles Mathieu then took over and began the first bottling of the grapes in 1976. The vineyard is now run by their son Fabièn and his wife Séverine. They utilize traditional methods with 3 champagne grape varieties and 5 vintages. Focusing on quality, the two keep only the lekwijn and sell the remainder to larger champagne houses. This leads to Mathieu-Gosztyla only releasing 40,000 bottles annually.
Pierson-Cuvelier, created in 1901, owns ten hectares that are spread over twelve municipalities. Located in Louvois, Pierson-Cuvelier is exclusively classified as Grand Cru and Premier Cru. The three generations of wine growers have respected the land and soil so much that there are no chemical compounds or insecticides used in any part of the creation process. Mixing modern techniques with traditional heritages, the champagnes are matured for three years at the bottom of the cellar in temperature controlled vats and barrels. The Reims mountain allows for the Pinot Noir grapes to flourish, creating a Pierson-Cuvelier champagne that is promised to have a very fruitful flavor with the delicate balance of a Chardonnay.
The Sacret family began producing wines in 1920 when founder Raymond Sacret launched his own market and produced his own Champagne. He used his own vines and thus, Champagne Sacret was born. Soon to follow, Raymond’s granddaughter Josette, ran the house for many years. The tradition continued when Josette’s son James took over and continued the adventure. Four generations later, the Sacret family continues to produce quality champagne from the foothills of Champagne, France. James opened Domaine Sacret in 2014, and after a few years of hard work, he was able to turn an old 19th century building into a guesthouse for visitors and tourists from all around the world.

The vineyards from which we produce the grapes for our wines are located on our estate at the western end of the municipality of Benevento, in the La Francesca district, on the road leading to Pietrelcina. The whole property is characterized by a gentle slope that becomes slightly harsher in the particles from which we obtain the Falanghina grapes. The individual vines, from the oldest to the youngest of the 2000s, have all been planted in the best exposures, from south / west to south / east, orienting the rows from north to noon. The agronomic management respectful of the environment and the particular characteristics of our soils, calcareous tuff with multicolored clays, give the wines a shelf life and a straightforward and tasty character, which evolves in elegance over time.
Immersed in the splendid natural setting of Tocco da Casauria, our vineyards and olive groves lie in the heart of Italy, at the foot of three mountain ranges, near two national parks. Our wines are the expression of what poet Ovid called a “fertile land” supported by more than a century of winegrowing experience vaunted by this family. Our precious and unique products are created and left to rest and refine their flavor and character in harmony in Palazzo Guardiani Farchione’s historic underground cellars.
“La Fortezza” was built on the belief that the wine making process begins in the vineyards and the strength of “LA Fortezza” just comes from our quality soil, our exposure to the sun, our altitude and how we take care of vineyards.
Placed in the middle of the vineyards is the cellar, which is entirely covered by stone, facing, forming a harmonious whole with the surrounding landscape. The efficiently organized manufacturing facilities of “La Fortezza” have the potential of producing one million bottles annually.
The winery is settled in Campania Region, and we do produce high quality wines, typical of our Region.
Famiglia Fusco Viticultori is a winery located in Torrecuso, a small southern italian village in
the province of Benevento, Campania region. The Fusco family is committed in viticulture from
generations. Today the winery is managed with passion and enthusiasm by two brothers, Carmine and
Marco, who grew up playing, then working, side by side, in the family estate.
The vineyards are located on the lower slopes of Monte Taburno, where the unique microclimate and
soil composition allows to produce structured red wines and whites of great freshness and crisp,
mineral elegance. The Fusco family has chosen to produce wines only from autochthonous grapes, vinified in purity. This in order to offer the opportunity to taste the real soul and identity of the territory.
Firmly rooted in the Campania region for three generations, the winery Nifo Sarrapochiello
is located in Ponte, a small town of Sannio, a loveable place very popular since Roman times, which
owes its name to the presence of an impressive bridge, the “pontem lapideum”, on which the Via Latina
was running, connecting Rome to Benevento and thanks to which Romans were sourcing the rest of the
Empire with very high quality grapes and wine.
Winemaker for passion and cultural heritage is the young owner, Lorenzo Nifo Sarrapochiello,
who decided to combine respect for tradition and scientific innovation in order to ensure high levels of
quality. Since 1998, grapes coming from Nifo Sarrapochiello winery are grown and treated with the
method of organic farming (control body bioagricert). After a strictly manual harvest, grapes are
transformed with production standards that protect the environment and the health of the consumer: in this way, fragrant, complex, intensely aromatic and with a great personality wines are born.
