Records show that wine making has been going on in this region since the 13th century B.C. Arguably, the best-known Campania wine is the Lacrima Christi or, “Tears of Christ”. Though, in the past, it was so overproduced that it almost ruined its reputation. In more recent years, however, serious efforts have been made by local winemakers to restore its former status and so far this has met with some success. Campania has several native grapes such as: Fiano, a grape known to the Romans as Viti Apiana; Greco, a grape first introduced by the Greeks; Coda di Volpe, so named by Pliny after the shape of the grape cluster; and Pedirosso. Both red and white wines are actively being developed by large, and smaller, family-owned wineries. Many of these wines are lively, full of youthful fruit and reasonably priced.
