The agriculture company Donnachiara produces Irpinia’s three DOCG wines, i.e. Fiano di Avellino, Taurasi and Greco di Tufo, as well as the traditional Aglianico and Falanghina wines. Such production follows a tradition that has been pursued by the Petitto family, who are the owners of the company, for years. Donnachiara is located in the province of Avellino, a stone’s throw away from Montefalcione, a town that was already powerful under the Etruscans and has a scythe (symbol of farm work) in the municipal coat of arms.
Born in 2005, this modern winery boasts vineyards with ancient properties and almost all female management, including the current CEO Ilaria Petitto, who decided to dedicate herself to grape development. Ilaria is supported by her mother Chiara, the niece of Donna Chiara Mazzarelli Petitto, for whom this company is dedicated.
