Elena Fucci started her wine azienda in 2000, saving the 6-hectares of vineyards her grandfather purchased 40 years prior in Barile on the slope of Mount Vulture - a dormant volcano. Previously, her family sold the grapes or made wine for themselves.
Her vineyards are the oldest on the volcano and for almost 20 years she produced just a single wine from the vineyard of Contrada Solagna del Titolo, simply called Titolo. Now, through VDLT Direct she is introducing a new project from a newly acquired plot with old vines.
Elena is passionate about her work and her wines. She built a new winery, connected to the original cellar by a tunnel through the volcanic rock. She is rightly proud that the facility has a zero energy footprint.
