Azienda Vitivinicola Battifarano


We are a family-owned, estate-based producer of hand-crafted wines, using grapes exclusively produced in our own vineyards with an Integrated Farming Management system.

The estates, with a total area of approximately 100 ha, are dedicated to vineyards (35ha), with olive and peach cultivation. They lay on the Ionic coastal area of Basilicata, the land also known as “Enotria”, with reference to the “people from the land of vines - Οἰνωτρία”, which is on the border with Apulia region. The region, formerly known as Magna Grecia (circa 7-8th century B.C), is still one of the most pristine and unspoiled areas in Italy.

Our Winery expresses the best mix between the traditional “wines of place” and great international blends, combining the native vines such as Primitivo and Greco, with international vines such as Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon. As a matter of fact, our wine portfolio ranges from traditional powerful, inky reds from Primitivo, to fresher reds and rosés, as well as some fruity and bright white wines.

In particular, we are honored to have taken part in the birth of the Primitivo Matera DOC in 2005, as founding member of the consortium.
This Primitivo wine is named after Matera, the unique and ancient cave-city, Unesco site famous for its sassi, stone houses carved out of the caves and cliffs, that is the European Capital of Culture of 2019, thus attracting great attention from media and travellers around its history and food culture.

“Vines have the power to remind of the scents and fragrances that surround them. In each of our wines you will smell a piece of our history.” (Francesco Battifarano)
