To recount the origins of Fontanavecchia is like telling the story of Torrecuso and its people. An old register from the Bourbon era mentions that already more than one hundred and sixty years ago the excellent wine of this area was produced by the hands of the winegrowers of the Rillo family, attentive caretakers of the vines and guardians of the antique traditions of the magical city of Benevento. The story of the wine-producers of Fontanavecchia is inextricably linked to the history of the Samnium region and its wines: Falanghina del Sannio and Aglianico del Taburno. These two precious grape varieties have come back into fashion thanks to the steady effort of the Rillo family and are renowned world wide today; it is a story of antique traditions and bold visions of the future, of passsion, daily work and innovation. The Rillo family has dedicated a whole life of loving commitment to the cultivation of the vines, to the memory of its origins, and to the care of the land.
