This land is a volcano, one of the most studied and fascinating in the world, the only active one in continental Europe: it is Vesuvius.

For centuries praised by illustrious men, it is the symbol par excellence of its inhabitants, of the territory and of the Neapolitan culture. In the eastern heart of the volcano, established as the Vesuvius National Park (June 5, 1995) for its inestimable geological and historical value, are planted the vines and olive trees of Casa Setaro.

It is on these volcanic soils, from Alto Tirone to Bosco del Monaco, that only  native vines re cultivated by hand with different micro compositions of soils  (effusive rock, sand, lapilli), rich in phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, calcium, sodium, magnesium, iron, manganese, copper, zinc, molybdenum.
But also various  altitudes and exposures, which enjoy a further singularity: the presence of flora and fauna species on this piece of land is remarkable, just think of the 612 plant species that strongly characterize the biodiversity  of the area.
