Celebrate the wines of Calabria with winemaker, Vincenzo Ippolito.
Ippolito 1845 is the oldest winery in Calabria. Vincenzo Ippolito started his mission to revive the indigenous grapes of Gaglioppo, Calabrese, and Pecorello over 160 years ago when he carved his initials into the wall of a country house set in the heart of Ciro Marina. Surrounded by orange trees and olive groves and bordered by the Ionian Sea, it seemed to be the perfect place for a vineyard, and he was right.
Ippolito wines convey elegance, exclusivity, and a strong identity with their territory. The Ippolito family believes in preserving their environment by employing sustainable farming and wine making methods.
5-course dinner with wine pairing.
$125 per person, plus tax and gratuity
