There are identitarian places where the time slows down and life has a different taste. Places where every limit becomes horizon, the future past and the tradition modernity. Places that preserve a permanent memory of the events and they modify the perception of those who go through them. Places like the Cilento national park. In the middle of this park, near Paestum, Stio and Giungano, the agricultural firm San Salvatore was born. For San Salvatore the land becomes a space where a community has built, over the years, a collective production know founded upon a delicate system of interactions among people, physical environment and biological environment. Every product that was born inside this space receives an originality and a typical and specific mark. Details are what make things special. The small differences that make a difference together. As our story, which begins in the mid-40s in Boscoreale, on the slopes of Vesuvius. Perhaps they had also seen a buffalo in the vineyards because it is from their encounter that this story starts. Other times, fragments of emotions that are being rediscovered today in our love for organic or biodynamic agriculture, but are never intensive. We do not stress our vines and respect the ecological referential identity, rhythms and traditions of a special terroir.
Yesterday we were winemakers and farmers. Today we are a farm of 97 hectares, of which 21.5 vineyards and the rest divided between orchards, olive groves and woods, and 450 buffaloes that are exported all over the world, from Australia to the United States. Tomorrow, we will be something more: a series of outlets where our products and the best products of the national park will be prepared by the only hands that cook for and with love: women's hands, the hands of housewives. But this is a story that begins tomorrow.
