The Maffini winery was founded at the beginning of 1970s, when the family's first vineyard was planted. In 1996 the company launched its Kratos wine. Today, the company's wines come from two vineyards: one in Castellabate, close to the sea, and one in Giungano, further in Cilento's hinterland. Both vineyards rigorously observe the principles of organic farming. With its gently rolling, rugged hills, covered with Mediterranean maquis, Cilento offers an ideal terrain for viticulture. Together with a protected natural environment and the Cilento flysch geological formation, rich in clay and limestone, the area provides an excellent soil for the local vines' deep roots. In this area, Fiano and Aglianico, Campania's classical vines, have achieved a unique and refined level of excellence, also thanks to the work of tenacious vine growers.
