The Di Majo Norantes have been wine producers since 1800, the old cellars underneath the square and in the old family building at Campomarino still remain to prove it. Commitement to grape growing was inherited first of all by Luigi and then by his son Alessio Di Majo. It continues today alongside research and experimentation.
Di Majo Norante produces its own wines from grapes grown on the 85 hectare vineyard of the ancient fief of the Marquises Norante di Santa Cristina. Since the Di Majo Norante "wine making philosophy" is consistent with the traditional methods of grape-growing and wine production which is focussed on preserving all the characteristics of Mediterranean wine-making, the modern cellar will soon also have a barrel-store that originally was a 17th Century stone granary.
