Casa Setaro is located in Trecase, in the province of Naples, in the Vesuvius National Park, since 1995 it has been a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
The Casa Setaro winery and estate is located in the Campania wine region of Italy, on the slopes of the famous Mount Vesuvius. The winery was built from the love and passion of the Setaro family. The family is committed to the revival of vines that are at the risk of extinction, the cultivation of grapes, and the production of sustainable wines.
Casa Setaro does not use any chemical fertilizers or herbicides in their vineyards, allowing all of the grapes to grow organically. This is done in order to obtain healthy and ripe grapes without having any potential negative environmental impacts. The Casa Setaro vineyards are the heart of the estate and are planted on 12 hectares of land. The altitude of the vines is between 200 and 350 meters above sea level. The result of all of this is a range of eclectic Casa Setaro wines that are all representative of the rich history of the estate and the land on which it is located.
The wine-making team at Casa Setaro pride themselves on using traditional wine-making techniques while always keeping an eye on potential innovations for the future.
The vines are trained using the ancient pergola vesuviana method and grow in a lava soil rich in potassium and microelements composed of lapillus and sand. This has allowed the vines to remain ungrafted, including the Caprettone varietal, a biotype in the past confused with Coda di Volpe which Massimo has the merit of having given value to.
