“La Costiera di Vinaccia Ferdinando” was born in Sorrento in 1960, country of origin of Vinaccia Family as small family company, with the purpose to produce and to commercialize the “Lemon of Sorrento”, recognized all along as fine product and above all as “original Italian” product.
"La Costiera di Vinaccia Ferdinando", leader company in the production, trading and working of lemons entered officially in the Consortium of the Producers of the Lemon of Sorrento IGP, in conformity to the rule EEC n. 2081/92.
During the years La Costiera main objective has been to valorize and to promote the Lemon of Sorrento, product of very high quality and without chemical treatments, and to bring it on the tables of consumers preserving its freshness, the deliciousness, the aroma, the perfume and the taste, strengthening contemporarily the image of excellence of Sorrento and the Sorrentine Peninsula.
All along La Costiera is engaged in valorisation of Sorrentine Peninsula, native territory to which Vinaccia Family is intimately linked and where, from years, they cultivate with care and devotion the lemons grove placed in Piano di Sorrento and Sant'Agnello.
In 1997 Vinaccia brothers moved to Fondi (Latina, Italy) for market demands and decided to establish to MOF, Centro Agroalimentre di Fondi where, thanks to the strong determination and deep knowledge of their work, in a very shortly time the company became leader of the market in the processing and trading of citrus fruit, above all lemons, proponing a large variety to guarantee to the consumer both the genuineness of the product both its availability during every month of the year.
