The studies conducted in ancient Pompeii have highlighted the presence of vine areas around the Amphitheater. Aiming to return those spaces to their former use, the choice of varieties to be planted was established by an ampelographic study compared to the bunches of grapes depicted in the frescoes and to those of the Campania vines of Greco-Roman descent. Following the cultivation experimentation, two native vines were re-planted, the Sciascinoso and the Piedirosso. Currently the grapes produced in the vineyards of ancient Pompeii are vinified by Mastroberardino with the name of Villa dei Misteri.
