La ConaNarrante

Why “la cona”?

History 

La Cona is the canal that, through an underground route, currently crosses the village of San Donaci.

In the year 1107 the Byzantine monks, escaped from Constantinople for the persecutions of the Turks, settled around that canal and erected a small church with the fresco of the icon of the Madonna of Constantinople, reason why the canal was called CONA, ( icon of the Madonna).
Around the channel CONA, with the little church of the Madonna that was at the beginning of the current Via Machiavelli, the very first settlement of the village of San Donaci was born.
Near the channel CONA and the little church of the Madonna the Byzantine monks planted the oldest vineyard of San Donaci from which the vineyard produced wine for their sustenance and for the celebration of Holy Mass.

Why “Narrante”?

History

Narrante is the story of a territory, a community, two grandparents and a wine cellar that is still alive.
It is the story of two families lived through three generations during the alternation between the seasons and the phenological phases of a vine, the Negroamaro.
Narrante is all these stories, that are told by a wine with sincerity to be launched towards the future.
