The Allegretti farm was founded in Barile, as a classic producer of grapes and Aglianico del Vulture DOC wine, a great wine from Basilicata, listed among world’s 7 greatest wines. Soon it conquers important markets in Europe and USA. Over the years it has been implemented an innovative idea: “participated and sustainable agriculture”: to open the vine and the winery to visitors, participation in Aglianico DOC wine production – BnB hospitality – Homerestaurant in the cellar – Local “Food and wine tours” in the nearby Amalfi Coast, combining environment, landscapes, architecture, art and rural life with anthropological insights.
“To my partner and my parents, to have transmitted me love, passion and work ethic.”
The first customers were found on the regional and national market, but soon we collected orders for the following year 2002, in Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany, England, California, USA and France.
Evolution and growth in the last decade experimenting with new formulas of participated agriculture, hospitality tasting of local dishes in the Cellars, food and wine tasting in Basilicata, Puglia, Campania and Lazio linked to culture, architecture and history. From the elaboration of these ideas comes the new ALLEGRO FARM project, which will open its vision sharing in the world.
Since 1986 the Allegretti family has been producing Aglianico wine for the first time. With the passing of the years the company. Allegretti grows bigger, because father Francesco, architect by profession as winemaker by vocation, transmits his passion and love for this noble art to his children.
Then, next to the wine and sparkling wines, there are other products: extra virgin olive oil and, finally, a little bit of balsamic vinegar.
A story made of passion, work, attention to tradition but always with an eye to innovation and technological evolution and “AN ANCIENT STORY, A MODERN COMPANY” (photo brochure with wine glass and apple pc). Today a new era opens with a new philosophy of participated agriculture ALLEGRO FARM.
