Agricolavinica was established in 2007 with the aim of developing a full project for organic farming and eco-sustainable development of a territory whereas long time abandoned lands and vineyards with ancient documented vocation were suitable to produce excellent vegetables, fruit and wine.
The name Agricolavinica comes from the passion for agriculture and the acronymous of Rodolfo’s children in order of birth date: Vittorio, Nicholas and Carola. Agricolavinica sits on the hills of Ripalimosani, a small commune of the Molise Region and it extends over an area of 220 hectares, which is now divided into vineyards (approximately 30 hectares), olive groves (about 20 hectares), indigenous orchards (about 6 hectares), organic arable crops (about 50 hectares of spelt “farro dicocco” and wheat) as well as forests and pastures (the remaining 100 hectares) which characterize the landscape.
