Customer Testimonials

Castronovo wine is authentic, but simple. Perfect with our kind of food at Anthony's. A great drinking wine.
Anthony Bruno | Owner Anthony's Runway 84, Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza
Castronovo Montelpucciano d' Abbruzzo is a great wine that drinks easy, and makes your meal a party. I particulary love it with my Steak Au Poivre...the fruit really pops, it tastes richer then its pricetag and the flavor is all good. Mangia y Bevi baby

About Castronovo Vineyards

– I’ve been a radio personality in the South Florida area for nearly 30 years and over those years, I’ve befriended numerous chef’s and restauranteurs. I’ve been a part of the South Florida Wine and Food Festival since its inception and food and wine has always been a part of my radio show and personality. We’re all about entertaining, and great wine and food are always big part of that. In fact, that’s how my journey to vineyard owner began, meeting Eros Spinozzi, now a dear friend and an Italian wine exporter, his introduction of my family to the Galasso family of the San Lorenzo winery, and bonding over wine and food in Abruzzo.
