History: Greek immigrants first settled the tiny island of Ischia, located just off the coast of Naples, in 700 BC.
These pilgrims carried with them the highly evolved culture and customs of the Hellenic civilization, including the prestigious art of vine cultivation.
Through the centuries Ischian natives have used large, heavy stones of green rock called PIETRATORCIA as tools to help them in the crushing of the grapes.
