Near the town of Ponte, in the heart of ancient Sannio, you will find the Ocone Estate of Agricola del Monte. One of the great family producers of Campagia established in 1910. Beneath the reassuring embrace of Mount Taburno with its unparalleled microclimate, the Ocone Winery confirms and renews its historic partnership with local vine growers.

An indissoluble bond between the land and those who work it.
