Gioia Luisa roots date back to 1946 when Felice and Laura Maresca formed a small family entity specializing in selling fresh and dried fruit. Oranges, Lemons and nuts are rich commodities of the Sorrentine Peninsula of Italy. During the next forty years, the Maresca’s would develop many close relations with prestigious clients throughout Italy and Europe. The magic component for all flourishing vegetation in this region is the ‘soil composition’ cultivated by the explosion of Mt. Vesuvius hundreds of years ago. These unique soil qualities are not found in any other Italian location.
After their untimely death, their son, Francesco Saverio, realized his new calling was to take over the family business. Francesco recognized the value of his parents effort’s represented in 1986, with his family by his side, Gioia Luisa SRL was formed. Francesco’s aim was to commercialize a simple and natural liqueur obtained from lemon peels infused in pure alcohol, LIMONCELLO di SORRENTO. From the most prominent fruit grown in the region, Francesco knew he had the ingredients for success. His dream became a reality and today, Gioia Luisa’s Limoncello annual capacity is in excess of over 275,000 cases. Since then, Gioia Luisa has been a leader in supplying the marketplace with quality liqueurs, preserves and other fruit based products.
