The history of the vine in Apulia dates back to the Phoenician era but it was the contribution of the Romans who were the first to recognise and appreciate the wines also praised by the poet Horace. As in all of Italy, phylloxera also appeared in Apulia, where it hit in a particularly violent way, almost resulting in the total disappearance of the vine. The desire to rebuild the vineyards came about by aiming for quality with the introduction of Negroamaro and Primitivo. Success was really important so much so that today these wines represent Apulian around the world.

Climate and Territory

The Apulian territory is very vast, bathed by the Ionian and Adriatic seas and extends between hills and plains. The climate is typically Mediterranean with hot and breezy summers and mild winters with little rain: an ideal climate for structured wines with a good intensity of colour. The northernmost part of Apulia is characterised by soils rich in limestone and clay while further south we find more sandy soils that blend perfectly to give wines of character, elegance and aroma. The Salento soils, richer in tuff and limestone, are suitable for the production of red grapes that give more structured and intense wines such as Primitivo.
