About today’s guest:
Vincenzo Ippolito is the owner of Cantina Ippolito. With over 170 years of history, the Ippolito winery represents the oldest winery in existence in Calabria. Located in the historic center of Cirò Marina, the heart of Calabrian viticulture, the company includes an agricultural estate of over 100 hectares, distributed between rolling hills and sunny plains close to the Ionian Sea, located in the classic area of Cirò.
The company mission has always been the recovery and enhancement of native vines such as Gaglioppo, Greco Bianco, Calabrese, Pecorello and finally Greco Nero. Through constant research, the use of innovative techniques, the direct control of all production processes, they seek elegance, exclusivity and identity with their territory in their wines.
