Located in Tufo, in the province of Avellino, 50 km east of Naples, the di Marzo winery is the original estate where the Greco di Tufo was first made.
In 1647, Scipione di Marzo, first known ancestor of the family, left his hometown of San Paolo Belsito near the town of Nola to flee from the plague that was ravaging the region. He took with him some vines of a local white variety called at the time Greco del Vesuvio. Once settled in Tufo, he planted this variety in a region previously planted mostly in red. He became the founder of the wine Greco di Tufo. In 1648 he began the construction of the winery and the fortified house above it know
