The Mustilli family, coming from Ravello in the Republic of Amalfi, established itself in the town of Sant’Agata dei Goti at the beginning of the 14th century.
Starting in the 1960s, Leonardo e Marili’ Mustilli changed direction for the family wine making operation and planted the hills of Sant’Agata again with vines of the indigenous varieties Falanghina, Greco, Aglianico and Piedirosso. Leonardo Mustilli was the first to have made and bottled pure Falanghina wine in the ‘70s.
Until 2001 wine was made in the old cellars of the Palazzo Mustilli, excavated to a depth of 45 ft underneath the house in the center of the medieval town of Sant’Agata. Today the wine making has been moved to a state-of-the-art facility, at the edge of town.
The two Mustilli daughters, Paola and Anna Chiara, are now running the family business; Paola is in charge of all commercial aspects, including sales abroad and Anna Chiara overseas the vineyards, winemaking and quality control
Wine aficionados who visit the Mustilli winery and its cellars are welcome in the Palazzi of the family in the historical centre of town. One of the Palazzi houses an Agriturismo that serves authentic regional cuisine and the other one – the family residence – has the wine bar “Le Cantine di Mustilli” with live music. All supervised directly by Marilì, expert cook and perfect hostess. The excellent food accompanies elite wines in the best of Italian tradition.
