Cantine Del Notaio Societa' Agricola Arli think I was about seven years old and I remember it as if it were yesterday. I went to have a look at my grandfather’s vineyard and I found him bent over a vine. He was a stern man and I was always awed by him, but there among his vines he had a serene and unusually sweet expression. He turned and saw me, and was suddenly serious again. “Hey, repeat your name!” he said. I was really frightened. Grandfather’s going mad, I thought. He can’t remember my name! I started to run away, but he took by the arm and asked again, “Quickly”, tell me, what’s your name?” “Gerardo”, I answered, in a small voice. “Your name’s Gerardo”, he said, “the same as mine. That’s why my vineyards will be yours one day”. When I remember him now, it makes me smile when I think how proud I was, more than thirty years and many adventures later; to claim my roots in my grandfather’s legacy and make it the focus of my life. I know now that the real legacy I inherited goes beyond vineyards: it is a legacy of values, a love for things “done properly”; a desire to accomplish rather than to possess. And so I would like to dedicate everything I have done and will do to my family. To my grandfather, who quietly pointed out what proved to be the right path for me to follow. To my parents and especially my father, a notary public, who taught me the determination to achieve goals and the respect for tradition. To my mother-in-law with her extraordinary generosity and strength. And to my father-in-law, a remarkable man who would undoubtedly have continued to encourage me with his inimitable enthusiasm and love for life. And my Wife? I can only say that without her, this adventure would never have even begun!

Azienda Vinicola Paternoster S.r.l.Paternoster Family may well be described as a main chapter of Mount Vulture wine making history, as they have been wine growers since last century. It all started from “Grand Pa” Anselmo decision to keep alive the noble art of wine producing inherited from his father. In 1925 (the date is still visible on family historical cellar doorway) he chose to sell bottled Aglianico, which, up to that moment, he just vinificated for domestic and friendly purposes. This date is crucially relevant both for Winery and Family’s history. Since then, every single member jealously started saving each vintage labels, pictures and wine making traditional tools. Unaware Grand Pa Anselmo gave life to a reputable three generations family business today absolutely complied with tradition, historical epoch, local sites and natural ecosystem. Annual production stands around a fixed quantity of 150.000 bottles in order to grant constant quality standards to medium–high range consumers. Numerous awards and specialized press issues have recognized Paternoster central role as major promoters of Aglianico del Vulture, as well as testimonials of the whole wine making area. Commercial success and fame have not influenced company’s beliefs and original commitments: a deep link with Basilicata, namely Barile, an ancient and important centre for Aglianico del Vulture production. Here the “Cantine” sites, a still visible amazing cluster of more than 100 tufaceous secular cellars, reveal the unforgettable family’s seal carved on to the initial steps of local Vulture wine making.
