If your choice fell on everyday wine, you will be surprised by the value for money. The reason for the affordable price sits on two main factors; The local production, which avoids important distribution costs like shipping, customs, taxes, advertising and the short or medium ageing, which quickly releases the wine on the market with no claim to be a structured product. The average price for 0,75 lt. in a deli shop or supermarkets, is around 6 to 7 € for reds and 4 to 5 € for whites. In a Mescita shop these prices can drop around 3 to 4 € for reds and 2 to 3 € for whites, per litre.

Mescita is an old fashion shop relaunched in 2000 with new rules and upgraded systems, where you can purchase wine in bulk. Prepared in advance or directly spilled on demand from large demijohns into regular bottles, which you shall buy first time and then refill if you like. The handiest Mescita to Villa Casafredda is, in less then a kilometre, in Ceciliano Village.
