HISTORY

Following Catullus verse in Latin “…minister vetuli puer Falerni…” (Catul., XXVII), chronologically this is the oldest, quotes of Falerno reported by poets and writers of ancient Rome: Orazio, Virgilio, Plinio, Marziale, Ateneo, Domitius. In the area between the Volturno River and Massico Montain, there was Sinuessa Romaine colony founded in 296 BC, right in the heart of the famous “ ager Falernu”, that now is Mondragone city. Settled here in the early ’900 a branch of Moio family, started an important wine business. Today in the centre of this town, inside a rural court still intact in Mondragone, you can find Moio wineries. From the beautiful countryside that surrounds Mondragone, this Company have produced grapes of the highest quality full of tradition and history of an ancient land and of a noble past. Commendor Mr. Michele Moio since the end of second world war have understood that red wine made from Primitivo grapes of Mondragone, could be considered, after many centuries of technical changes, climatic, genetic and taste the modern version of the ancient Roman Falerno wine. He is credited with having revived since the 50s to the wine lovers of classical antiquity a great new Falerno.
