San Salvatore is located in the heart of the Cilento National Park, near Paestum, Stio, and Giungano, in the Campania region of southern Italy. With 149 hectares devoted to organically farmed agriculture, including vineyards, olive groves, and crops that support their 550-head of water buffalo, San Salvatore has quickly become one of Italy’s most environmentally-conscious azienda agricolas.

In 2006 Giuseppe Pagano, a successful entrepreneur and hotelier in the Paestum region of Campania, created San Salvatore 1988 from a series of unique plots of land in Cilento and various vineyards across the region. The winery is named for Giuseppe’s firstborn son, Salvatore, who was born in 1988. Already famous for his 500-head herd of Bufala and delicious Mozzarella, Giuseppe built a state-of-the-art winery where he marries the importance of tradition with the latest advances in winemaking techniques. Deeply committed to preserving the delicate balance of the land, San Salvatore takes a special interest in cultivating the vineyards without synthetic products or genetically modified organisms and uses biodynamic preparations like horn dung that favor the natural fertility of the ground and the production of beneficial humus. Vines are also protected from pests and diseases with the careful use of copper and sulfur when necessary. From supplying their own power needs with an onsite photovoltaic plant and a biodigester to reducing their carbon footprint and emissions through innovative processes. San Salvatore has truly excelled at achieving sustainable living ideals and continues to set the standard for environmental practices in the Italian wine industry.
