The Cantina di Solopaca, is one of the oldest agricultural cooperatives in Campania. With about 120 thousand hectoliters of wine produced it is at the top of regional production.
The vineyards are located in a vast area that, starting from the municipality of Solopaca, involves another 16 neighboring municipalities, reaching a total vineyard area of approximately 1300 hectares.

The cultivated varieties are the Falanghina, the Aglianico, typical vines of the Sannio benventano, but also Greco and Fiano. In the last few years, traditional grape varieties such as Coda di Volpe and Barbera have also been rediscovered.
