The small town of Zambrone, in Calabria, is one of the pearls of the Gulf of Sant’Eufemia. It is halfway between the famous Tropea and the seaside resort of Briatico.
It offers a varied coastline with rocks and cliffs and one of the cleanest seas in Italy.
The Aeolian Islands can be seen in the distance and the fiery red sunsets typical of the southern Tyrrhenian Sea with the profile of the Stromboli volcano on the horizon are unforgettable.
This area is historically dedicated to wine production.
In 744 BC the arrival of the Greeks in Calabria promoted more advanced viticulture by making use of the proper characteristics of this country: the salty air, the Mediterranean heat and the surprising vocation for viticulture.
For this very reason, the Greeks called today’s Calabria Enotria (land of wine).
In ancient Greece, Calabrian wines were offered as a prize for the Olympic Games winners.
In the 19th century, large quantities of wine for the French market were shipped from the port of Tropea, which is only a few kilometers from Zambrone.
In this historical setting, the Artese family’s love for wine was born.
For three generations, Cantine Artese has shown passion for nature, vine and territory.
