The history of the ancient Calabrian family of Nicotera Severisio goes back to the fifteenth century and includes important people from the legal and military professions. Well known in Lamezia Terme in Calabria, it has always been tied to agricultural work and a love of the land. Fifteen generations of the family have cared for its land, and since then, have passed down the culture of wine and oil production to its children.
It was Baron Ferdinando Nicotera who started up and directly managed the activities of the family company making innovative decisions while maintaining unaltered the respect for tradition and the territory. His work is carried on and he lives on every day in the memories, words and gestures of the present generations.
Today the company is managed by the heirs, Francesca, Antonio e Francesco, who took up the challenge given them by their father. It is they who continue to carry forward, with passion and devotion, the cultivation of the native vines and the olive groves of the family.
Ancient and modern technology are joined together all over the vineyards. We find meticulous care given to every stage: the harvest, the wine-making and bottli, hard land, which at the same time gives fruit to those who know how to love and respect it.
The company is spread over 150 hectares of land including the vinery, olive groves, citrus fruit orchards and herb gardens: Stretto Veraldi, Carrà Cosentino, Contrada Carrà Fornace Cosentino and Umbri are the foundation names on which the Nicotera Severisio family base their olive groves and vineyards.
The heart of the company is surrounded by green, like the century-old palm trees and the cultivation typical of the zone. The company came from the entrepreneurial intuition of the Nicotera Severisio family and the century-old family tradition of dedication to agriculture and, in particular to the production of oil and wine.
