Danimi

Danimi is located in the Avellino in the Campania region of southern Italy. It is situated in a plain surrounded by mountains 50 kilometres northeast of Naples and is an important hub on the road from Salerna to Benevento.

The vineyards are a unique land…oaks, olive trees and generous vines.

Our vineyards are scattered within the whole Irpinia territory and are developed at an average height ranging from 400 to 600 meters above sea level. They are exposed at South East with clay and limestone soil. The height of the vineyards, the soil characteristics, the considerable temperature range and the Mediterranean terroir play a fundamental role in high quality production wines.
