Cantine Lavorata is situated in Roccella Jonica, a pretty little town in the southern part of the Ionian Coast and close to the wonderful Stilaro-Allaro valley, in the Province of Reggio Calabria. The vineyards are situated in contrada Nescilacqua in the area of Riace.

The family have been producing wines since the mid-1800s, with Luigi Lavorata passing the tradition down through the Lavorata brothers and sons. Today, the winery is run by Ilario’s three sons: Domenico the winemaker, Danilo the commercial manager and Adele the managing director.

Cantine Lavorata is recognised internationally for producing high quality wines and is the first producer we have imported from Calabria. These wines show terrific balance and typify the characters of ancient Calabrian soils.
