The research and development of this southern tongue of land has brought to light a wine production with an excellent quality-price ratio, satisfying and extremely linked to the territory.

“The fortunate geographical position sees Calabria at the center of the Mediterranean, which has always been a crossroads of peoples, goods and culture that stop over 800 km of coastline for commercial or colonial purposes. For this network of exchanges and intense relationships, the indigenous Enotria will become the Magna Graecia of the colonial era, following the colonization of populations of large groups coming from Greece aimed at finding and finding new living spaces from which to start and get wellbeing and fortune. A network of balances that will be turned upside down after nearly eight centuries of Greek great civilization by the Romans who will impose their power in the Mediterranean, from the third century BC. until the end of the imperial era. At that precise moment Christianity was already an official religion and Rome separated itself from Byzantium in what will be recognized as the great schism between East and West, between the Roman Catholic Apostolic religion and the Greek Orthodox Patriarchal religion. Calabria will detach itself from the central power and will therefore be annexed to the Patriarchate of Byzantium and to its direct control as the new Orthodox Eparchy and the Byzantine theme (region, dominion), the Thema of Calabria. It was one of the richest regions and at the same time one of the most culturally and artistically cared for by the Greeks of the East. ”

“La fortunata posizione geografica vede la Calabria al centro del Mediterraneo, da sempre crocevia di popoli, merci e cultura che fanno scalo negli 800 km di coste a fini commerciali o coloniali. Per questa rete di scambi e intensi rapporti l’Enotria indigena diverrà la Magna Grecia di epoca coloniale, in seguito alla colonizzazione di popolamento di ingenti gruppi provenienti dalla Grecia finalizzati a cercare e trovare nuovi spazi vitali da cui ripartire e ottenere benessere e fortuna. Una rete di equilibri che verrà sconvolta dopo quasi otto secoli di civiltà magno greca a opera dei romani che imporranno il loro potere nel Mediterraneo, dal terzo secolo a.C. fino alla fine dell’epoca imperiale. In quel preciso momento il cristianesimo era già religione ufficiale e Roma si separa da Bisanzio in quello che sarà riconosciuto il grande scisma tra oriente e occidente, tra religione Cattolica Romana Apostolica e religione Greco Ortodossa Patriarcale. La Calabria si distaccherà dal potere centrale e sarà pertanto annessa al Patriarcato di Bisanzio e al suo diretto controllo in quanto nuova Eparchia Ortodossa e Tema(regione,dominio) bizantino, il Thema di Calabria. Essa fu una delle regioni più ricche e allo stesso tempo una delle più curate culturalmente e artisticamente in mano ai greci d’oriente.”
