Bosco, Vermentino and Albarola from the exceptionally steep terraces on the sea.

The biggest vineyard gave the name to the winery. Campogrande, or “cianun” in dialetct, means “big field” and it really seems big compared to the small vineyards that are typical for the Cinque Terre. The vineyard was abandoned and covered with forest before being cleared and replanted in rows in 2005.
Campogrande is situated in the highest part of the hill called Serra.
