Privo L'Eretico, Paola Riccio
Paola Riccio is known as "Mrs Pallagrello" a grape that comes in both Nero and Bianco as it's the main variety found in her vineyards. The estate is based around her house which holds many memories of her summer holidays growing up and where she could escape and be with nature, picking blackberries with her dog.
Located in the Campania hillsides, she has been producing wine since 1993 but her first official harvest was in 2003. Paola manages the vineyards herself through a range of sustainable/organic techniques and uses cover crops to increase biodiversity. Known for her flair and quirky methods all the wines in her portfolio see ingenious yeasts, spontaneous fermentation and extended age to create truly unique and one of a kind experiences.
