Located at the foot of the Matese massif, near Mounts Ebrano and Mutria in the southern province of Salerno, San Lorenzo offers spectacular views. The area boasts age-old olive groves and vineyards and was already famous in the Middle Ages for its wine and oil production. There are traces of human settlement in the area that go back to prehistory, while the ruins of an ancient Roman bridge near the Church of Santa Maria della Strada bear witness to the existence of rural settlements in a later period. The bridge itself belonged to Via Latina, a Roman highway that crossed the region in antiquity. The first historical evidence of San Lorenzo itself can be found in a 14th-century document in which it is described as a hamlet of Limata, a feudal Norman village that has long since disappeared. Castel San Lorenzo is produced in an area covering seven districts, all part of the province of Salerno. The River Calore is the heart of this hilly, rugged region entirely covered with neat, sun-drenched vineyards. Thanks to its mild weather, the characteristics of its soil, the age-old traditions of its farmers, and the use of low-yield growing methods, San Lorenzo can boast quality wines. The most important wines produced at San Lorenzo are Barbera and Lambiccato, a sweet wine made with local clones of the Moscato grape. Barbera vines were introduced here a few decades ago with excellent results. Aged in oak barrels, San Lorenzo's Barbera has great structure and character.
