Producer Information

The story of Villa Matilde began in the 1960s as the passion project of Neapolitan lawyer, Francesco Paolo Avallone. His vision was guided by an abiding interest in Falernum, a wine best described as the “first growth” of the Roman Empire and his tireless work and research into its history ultimately led to the creation of the modern-day DOC of Falerno del Massico in 1989.

A similarly passionate approach is applied to the rest of their range and aside from Falerno, they produce stellar examples of Campanian wines from their vineyards in the prime areas of upper Caserta, the Sannio near Benevento and Irpinia. Today, the winery is managed by Avallone’s children, who have single-mindedly dedicated themselves to continuing their father’s dream.
