Vineyards in Apulia
About the region
Apulia is an ancient land with a very strong traditions where time seems to have stopped. In the vineyards which extend for about 200 hectares we can find bush vines aged 50 years or more. The first planted soils date back to 1963 in the province of Brindisi, in the Silicati area with Negroamaro variety. From 1977, the production extends in the Paticchi area, always in the province of Brindisi, and over the years it is enriched with varieties such as Syrah, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Lambrusco, while the main vineyards remain Primitivo, Negroamaro and Fiano. Few years ago a very old variety is added: Susumaniello that is being re-evaluated thanks to its strong varietal characteristics that give rise to unique wines.
