The Cantoni Astroni are a unique testimony of the “metropolitan” viticulture of Naples. The project came to life by the will of the Varchetta family in 1891. With a history spanning over four generations, the family founded the current Cantine Astroni company in 1999, located on the outer slopes of the Astroni crater between Naples and Pozzuoli. The focus of the company is mainly on the native grapes of this area such Falanghina and Piedirosso dei Campi Flegrei. In recent years, the company has been carrying out a great deal of conversion and protection of the territory. The primary objective is the continuous search for the unexpressed potential of Falanghina and Piedirosso dei Campi Flegrei.
