Piero Mastroberardino places a strong emphasis on history and tradition. His family’s centuries-old cellars are located at the northern end of the small town of Atripalda, just a few kilometres up the road from Avellino in the mountainous province of Irpinia, Campania.
‘The town grew up around the winery,’ explains Giuseppe Iannone from the Consorzio Vini d’Irpinia.

Despite the weight of history on his shoulders, Piero – the 10th-generation president of the family-run Mastroberardino winery – does not seem at all stuck in a rut. He maintains the careful balance of tradition and innovation pioneered by his father, Antonio – the man responsible for elevating the estate’s wines to the pinnacle of Italian winemaking.
