The history of viticulture in Calabria has its roots in the Magna Grecia period, when in the VIII century BC some settlers landed on the Ionian coast, expecially in the area of Punta Alice (Cirò KR), the ancient Krimissa. From here it spread all around Europe. Thanks to the climate and the fertility of the land, it was called Enotria, land of wine, which gave its name to ancient Calabria. The great variety of this territory, both geomorphological and microclimate, has encouraged today to create wines of great importance and highly appreciated in the world. In fact, the climate goes from the harsh one on the mountain, such as on the Pollino Massif in the largest Mational Park in Italy, the Sila plateau and the Aspromonte mountains, to the mild Mediterranean climate on the Ionian and Tyrrhenian coasts, by passing through the cool hills where we find vineyards set on 700 mt above see level, up to the dry areas of the Ionian Sea in the province of Reggio Calabria.

Among the most representative autochthonous vines in Calabria there are the red berried ones, the gaglioppo from the Cirò area and the magliocco from the province of Cosenza, and the white berried vines, the Greek of Bianco from the province of Reggio Calabria. Calabria currently produces 9 wines with Controlled Designation of Origin (DOC) and 11 wines with Typical Geographical Indication (IGT).
