Campania has been well-known for its wine since the Greeks and Romans settled there, when it was known as Oenotria, “the land of wine.” Falanghina’s vines were trained on phalanges (stakes) by the Greeks rather than being allowed to spread across the ground. Fiano is grown in Avellino; the name is derived from the Roman apiana which refers to the fact that bees favoured the grape. The most popular white is Greco di Tufo – another grape brought here by the Greeks.
