Bombino Bianco: Already grown for many years in Apulia, this vine seems to be native of Spain, although there are no sources definitely attesting this origin.

As to its name, the literature describes the shape of the bunch, which, according to a quite fantastic vision, resembles that of a child with stretched arms. This is the reason for the name Bammino, a dialect term of the Italian Bambino, later turned into Bombino.

Given the Spanish origin, the name is more probably derived from Bonvino, as the letter “v” is pronounced in Spanish like the letter “b” in Italian. Therefore, the Spanish word “Bonvino” is pronounced like the Italian “Bombino”. Thus, the name Bombino means “good wine”.

Fiano:The cultivation of this very old southern Italian vine goes back to Roman times. Apparently, it was originally grown in the district of Apio, east of Avellino. The word Fiano, was erroneously deemed to derive from the adjective Apianus (“of the bees”), where seems to be derived from the noun “Apianno”, an apple variety, and from Apia, today called Lapia, a place in the district of Avellino. It became very widespread in Apulia ate the time of the Angevins (between the 13th and the 15th centuries).
