The La Molara winery was founded at the beginning of the century by a group of four friends who are very passionate about wine. Led by Riccardo Morelli, they initially bought only a few hectares of vineyards and decided to buy in the heart of the DOCG area Taurasi, in Campania, where they produce the typical Campania wines, from Aglianico to Taurasi and from Greco di Tufo to Fiano di Avellino.
