Masseria Felicia

The winery is located at the foot of Mount Massico, in Sessa Aurunca: just inside what ancient Romans called Ager Falernus, an amazing territory with a fertile soil on which today the most famous wine of antiquity is produced. The hillside vineyards are located at about 200 meters above the sea level and reflect the favourable orographic conditions of the area. The soil of volcanic origin is mainly composed of grey tuff, pumice stone and ashes because of the presence of the extinct Roccamonfina volcano and of the Massico mount. This the background of an area no more than 10 km away from the sea.

The winery grows Aglianico, Piedirosso and Falanghina to produce typical wines which deliver the family tradition and transmit the idea of the past time, to better respond to the invitation of this land. The 5-hectares ancient vineyard, still lush and productive, is about 90 years old. The old harvest method allow to follow a careful selection of vines and grapes, so that only the best bunches arrive to the tanks and transmit the characteristics and the qualities of this extraordinary land.

The history of the winery traces back to 1995 when parents of Felicia (the current) decided to plant 1.5 Hectares of Aglianico and Piedirosso to make the wine ‘for the family’. The first harvest was collected in 1999 and the first 500 bottles of wine were produced.

The official ‘launch’ of Masseria Felicia was done 3 years later, in 2002, when the winery presented to the market Falerno del Massico Rosso l’Etichetta Bronzo, vintage 2000.

Today, Masseria Felicia, in addition to having found success in Italy among the fans of Falerno Del Massico, exports 50% of production to the United States, thanks to a fortuitous encounter with Wine Enthusiast magazine which awarded high scores to her wines.
