Established in 1880 by Sergio’s great grandfather in Ciro Marina, Calabria’s best known wine-producing region. Arcuri is AAA certified, indicating he is organic, makes wine with minimal intervention, and is committed to making distinctive wines expressive of their terroir. Sergio grows grapes on a variety of parcels of land in and around Ciro Marina. Some of the vineyards look right out onto the Ionian Sea, others are located in the hilly regions defined by the valleys that extend inward from the coast. Sea breezes provide a cooling influence in this hot climate region. Those breezes, along with clay and limestone soils give a notable briny tang to Arcuri wines.
