Located on the slopes of the immaculate hills of Taurasi, in one of the most suitable areas of Irpinia, Nativ winery is located in the heart of Paternopoli. A land rich in history and tradition. Rumor says that the territory was first colonized between the 4th and 3rd century B.C. Following the Edict of Constantine, which granted freedom of worship throughout the empire, more and more men began to abandon the wealthy life of the town, looking for isolated and peaceful places, where they could meditate and pray. Those men were named “Pater”, in the wake of the hermits of the Nile Valley. This wine is called so because the vineyard is the first on a rocky ground near an ancient onyx quarry located near Gesualdo. The stones extracted from this quarry are of yellow color, but also characterized by particular blue streaks from which the name comes from.
