Mastroberardino family is living inside the socio-cultural wine world contest from two centuries, accordingly to the most reliable historical reconstructions. The first traces of its presence in Irpinia date back to the Bourbons land register, in the half of the Eighteenth century, when the family chose the town of Atripalda as its headquarter, where the ancient cellar is still located. There started an offspring that tied for ever the destiny of the future generations to the wine cult. Since then, ten generations led the family business, in always different circumstances, as it always happens in the stories of the most ancient family businesses.
The Mastroberardino family was almost alone in Irpinia defending this patrimony up into the 1990s. If nowadays the wines of this area have a definite legitimate place among the most exclusive and famous world productions, it is due to the perseverance and the enormous contribution to culture by Antonio Mastroberardino, who was able to represent in a masterly manner the connection between the roots of the ancient world and man’s unquenchable thirst for knowledge.
