Termine grosso Cellars stands on 700 hectares of land between the towns of Roccabernarda and Cutro, in the province of Crotone, in the South of Italy, in Calabria.
The vineyards and the grapes are the result of the dedication and passion of Antonio Verga, entrepreneur, that thanks to his knowledge and energy, has created an innovative and organic wine production always linked to historical values and traditions of his family.
Termine Grosso is self-sufficient and it draws on exclusively local raw materials. The cultivation takes place in a natural way, without any use of chemicals or harmful substances, eliminating the use of pesticides or invasive agricultural techniques. The organic production’s practise allows the preservation of organic substances in the soil, through the use of a form of low environmental impact agriculture.
Through a purification system, the rain water or unused water, instead of being dispersed in the environment, it is reintroduced, after purification, in the irrigation systems. This also guarantees continuous sourcing of water and the reduction of waste.
The visit to Termine Grosso cellars leads by a wide open spaces with the scenery of vineyards and livestock farms to the wine production facilities, to the cellars.

The organic origin and cultivation technique make the products very different from a classic wine and a must-see if you are curious to new tastes.
The cellars are open to the public at the scheduled opening times, and , tours and wine tastings can be arranged by reservation for groups up 12- 15 persons. Antonio and Patrizia are happy to accompany visitors, in cellars and vineyards. Describe and tell the production of wine, in a welcoming and genuine atmosphere that tells about love for their work and for the earth, which for decades has given to the family, great satisfaction.
The cellars as well as the history of the family Verga, was born in a favourable geographical context and climatic weather. Sunny and mild climate for almost all year. The products are generally self-made and the job life in Calabria, until very recently, took place almost exclusively in farms contexts. Therefore farmers have deep knowledge about the land and its fruits.
In a natural environment spotless and thus uncontaminated starting your own organic and sustainable activity is also a great challenge.
The big achievement for Termine Grosso and the Verga family comes not only by the high quality of the products, but in having dealt with great ease and preparation to grow up a company in a context where a productive activity comes up against the limits of a territory still under development.
The wine cellars are just a few miles away from the most popular tourist areas and accommodation facilities. It is easy and recommended to schedule a visit and wine taste, in a journey that leads to admiration for the work, respect for the environment, for company that also gives a breath to the local economy.
