Cantina del Vesuvio

I have been so quick to share all of our amazing adventures we had when Campania had opened for a short time that I forgot to share some of the small food experiences that we enjoyed as well. But just because I didn’t remember to share them immediately on here doesn’t mean that they weren’t memorable enough!! There was such a long period where restaurants were not able to open for dining-in because of the pandemic and then it seemed they closed again just as quickly. We were able to catch one winery (and our first!) while things were open. So I guess you could say that our official Italian food experience began with a lunch break and tour of Cantina del Vesuvio. Even better- we were the ONLY people there! The day was overcast, hiding the top of Vesuvio, but the views in every direction were still gorgeous. Cantina del Vesuvio is located on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, with 16 hectares of vineyard planted in the volcanic soil. The Russo family has been working these hills since 1948 creating a winery of organic production and Italian hospitality. They produce a limited number of bottles each year and all are sold directly from their own wine shop.

Our roots will forever be from here, America, born and raised. Yet, life requires us to move more frequently than we care to count. Whether living stateside or abroad, you can always find us traveling somewhere. We scout out places that you only think you can dream of one day seeing and we seek out those that aren’t found in guidebooks. We then bring them to life here in our travel memos, so hopefully, one day you too can visit them or at least be able to live vicariously through us. This blog isn’t just about crossing off places from a bucket list. It’s about absorbing and learning how other cultures grow and fit into the same world that we do. Life is short and the world is big. Enjoy and get out there!
