GIUSEPPE MONTANARO

Amastuola is a place created in the mind of Giuseppe Montanaro, an eclectic entrepreneur with innovative ideas, who is sensitive to the environment, culture and knowledge.

“I think that in a global market, each company should search for its own competitive advantage based on the resources that it has at the start and what territory it can offer. For this reason in 1994, I realized that I must invest part of my industrial company’s earnings back into agriculture and rural tourism. As an entrepreneur from Southern Italy, I have always believed in the value of the soil, I have always chased ambitious projects with great determination, even when there were only a few people that believed in them. Amastuola Garden-Vineyard was born from love for my land, from constant research of its beauty through an ethical and respectful entrepreneurial attitude. From the farm’s beginning, we have embraced an organic philosophy as a sign of love and respect for a land that has given us so much, and that will never betray us as long as we pamper it as we do a child. For this reason our organic wines have tradition infused in their taste that foretells of extraordinary work, of waves and sensations. We aim, in small steps, to contribute to the excellence of Italian wine, marking out new steps of evolution and re-invention on the path of  tradition..” Giuseppe Montanaro
