Volcanic wines have been trendy for a few years now, they have unique characteristics that makes them sought after, they are different, they have an extra gear. Grapes grown in volcanic soil produces different, richer, more complex wines. Volcanic wines tend to have complex noses, higher acidity, earthy flavours and big structure; when properly made volcanic wines are great and can be drunk young or aged for years, reds as well as whites.
Whilst Volcanic wines have been appreciated for some time, Vesuvius' wines are still little known to the wider audience mainly due their very limited production, the area is very small compared to the other "volcanos" wine regions.
