Cantine Amato Story

Cantine Amato Story

The winery's origins date back to the 1930’s when Vincenzo Giardina Papa returned to his country of origin after emigrating to America in search of a better future. He decided to invest his earnings from overseas in the construction of a small inn where he could sell the wine he produced.

Some years later in 1958, his son-in-law Rosario Amato took over the family business and started a small family winery. His passion for wine production and the excellent performance of the business led him to extend the factory, installing numerous wooden barrels and concrete tanks underground.

The second generation

The company was then passed down to his son Salvatore Amato in the early 1980’s, and continued to grow with the further acquisition of a new insulated plant in 2004. The plant is insulated with special materials, and is equipped with the most innovative winemaking equipment for maturation and bottling.

Today

Today Salvatore Amato continues the management of the winery supported by his wife Fiorella and his son Rosaio who is graduated in Viticulture and Oenology.
