Welcome to Episode 1307 in which Marc Millon interviews Piero Mastroberardino of the Azienda Agricola Mastroberadino. This is part 1 of a 2 part episode.
More about the winery:
The Mastroberardino family has lived in the socio-cultural context of wine for over two centuries, based on the most reliable historical reconstructions.
The first traces of the presence in Irpinia date back to the Bourbon land registry, in the mid- eighteenth century, a time in which the family elected the village of Atripalda as its headquarters, where the ancient cellars are still located, and from there originated a lineage that linked indissolubly their fate to the cult of wine.
Since then, ten generations have conducted the family business, amid ups and downs, as always happens in the stories of family businesses of more ancient origin.
More about Piero Mastroberardino

His professional and entrepreneurial profile is doubly linked to the artistic one which takes the form of the fields of drawing and painting, fiction and poetry.
From 2011 to today he has in fact published two novels, Umano Errare and Giro di Vite and two collections of poems, All’origine dei sensi and Frammenti, the latter in the form of an artist’s book. With his paintings he has made numerous solo and group exhibitions in Italy and abroad and many of his works are present in national and international collections.
