|Areas of cultivation
||Pliny the Elder was the first to talk about the goodness of the wines of the territory north of Caserta in the Naturalis Historia. He praised that Campania had raised the value of some wines, the cauliflower and the trebulanum. The latter was approached by some at Casavecchia as Pliny referred to the trebulanum as a wine that was produced in the quadrilateral Pontelatone, Formicola, Castel di Sasso and Liberi. The area was known for the first Sannitic and later Roman center of Trebula Baliniensis, the current Treglia. The Trebulanum was the soldiers' wine. There is, however, no certain knowledge of the origin of the Casavecchia, there is only a legend passed down among the peasants that make it up to the discovery in an old "old house" ruin. There, at the beginning of the 20th century, an old straw of about 1 meter diameter survived the epidemics of oidio and phylloxera of the eighteenth century. Propagation took place through cutting and cuttings and the ancient method of propaganda, previously described by Columella, which involves the trapping of a branch until it develops its own roots.
