Winemaking on the island started relatively recently - in the first half of the 19th century. As premises for the distillery used the cellars (Palmenti a Cellaio, "the winepress and cellar," the map) , who survived the artillery attack of the British squadron in 1810. The small production volumes, the vineyards cover a small triangle between the distillery, the prison and the wall of the castle Park.

the distillery is located in front of the hexagonal building of the Church of St. Peter in Pantanello (Chiesa di San Pietro in Pantaniello the map), opened in 1564. Built the temple of Dionysus basso for his son, which became in him a priest. Construction was supervised by the architect Jacobo Bartolli (Vignola).

the Name of the temple was the statue of St. Peter, transferred from the little Church that stood near the lake, Pantanillo. Now, the lake is the Harbor of Porto di Ischia. After shelling, the Church was severely damaged and was abandoned. Inside the temple was made empty, but carefully repaired. Let's hope that the owners of the island will restore it in full.
