Many Italian wine enthusiasts will recognize the grape Aglianico, and some will even know Falanghina. These are both native to southern Italy. How about Casavecchia? Pallagrello Nero? Pallagrello Bianco? The Alois family has a long history in the silk trade, and in 1992 Michele Alois realized a dream of his to add viticulture to his family’s holdings. They purchased property and planted strictly local varieties, including some rare ones which had nearly disappeared. Today, they continue Vini Alois with a commitment to organic farming and autochthonous grapes.
