The Azienda Agricola San Salvatore is an eco-sustainable company which deeply cares about nature and the wildlife of the area where it operates, the Campania region, near the historic site of Paestum in Cilento.

Not only is the company committed to protecting the environment, but San Salvatore is committed to the whole region. The ‘bufala’ (female buffalo) is the most symbolic animal of Campania. San Salvatore produces ‘bufala milk’ but also a great variety of other products such as wine, olive oil, vegetables and natural-electric-energy, to the extent that it is self-sufficient. They like to say that they don’t farm the soil, but rather take care of it, and preserve it for the future generations.

Bellavita meets Andrea Giuliano, the Marketing and Sales Manager of Azienda Agricola San Salvatore-1988

Bellavita Magazine (BM) – Andrea, which feature are unique for the Cilento grapes and wines?

Andrea Giuliano (AG) – The most important one is the proximity to the Mediterranean Sea. The whole cost of Cilento has a very mild climate, with fresh nights and temperate days. This perfect combination helps the ripening of the grapes of the Aglianico, whilst the Fiano gains strength and flavour, and the Greco develops an explosive taste.

 

BM – Producing wine is an art. At Azienda Agricola San Salvatore-1988 you decided to have some art on the labels too, with some masterpieces of Gillo Dorfles. Can you explain to us the reason behind this idea?

AG – We decided to dedicate to Gillo Dorfles our chief production, our Aglianico Riserva 24 months, aged in French-oak wood Barrique. Considering our long friendship with Gillo Dorfles, he agreed to personally design the labels for the different years.68E98793-6548-488D-94AF-4817F4756D9A[12]

BM – How many people work at Azienda Agricola San Salvatore?

AG – In our company we are on average 18, and each and every one has a strong commitment on every details of the production process. The attention to detail in our everyday job for us means to care for ourselves. We have the luck to live in an area were nature and man are still living alongside each other, and we need to preserve that.

BM – Azienda Agricola San Salvatore will be at Bellavita London, from the 19th to the 21st of July 2015. What are you expecting from this experience?

AG – We expect to find a high end audience, experts who will be able to appreciate our wines and our terroir. Just think that 3000 years ago the Greeks decided to plant some vineyards for the first time on our hills. We are continuing this thousands-years heritage.

BM – What will be, in our opinion, the most interesting product among your range for the UK market?

AG – We want to present the Falanghina and the Aglianico, but I believe the Fiano and the Greco will also get a lot of interest.
