The Altamura Masseria is situated in Agro in the land of Torre Santa Susanna and in Oria, in the heart of the Salentine peninsula, a land of strong Mediterranean character where light, wind and sea all mix together for a unique alchemy. The production is left to Antonio Cavallo and his well articulated wine production.
An adventure that came to life out of the decades long experience of two very important wine producers: the Puglia cooperative ‘Cantine San Marzano’ and the Abruzzo company ‘Farnese Vini’ who from 2003 have united their wine producing force in an effort to re-launch true vines from Puglia through excellent wines. Success soon came not only in Italy but all across the world thanks to a production philosophy that couples together tradition in the growing fields and modern methods in the canteen.
Nine hundred years of history with countless illustrious personalities. 700 Hectares of land shared between plots and farms, 70 Hectares of cultivated vines and 260 century old olive trees. Cultivated native vines that have recently been turned over to a biological regime
In the sweet Apulia plain, almost central in the Salentine peninsula, halfway between the Ionio and Adriatic seas, between the Taranto Gulf and Otranto Channel there lies the land of Copertino better know as Feudo di Copertino when remembering a medieval law that proclaimed Copertino as the county’s capital. Today Cupertinum has a total of 350 partners and is working hard on the communications and new ideals of Salento.
With five centuries of history behind them they are amongst the most important wine producers of Salento. 320 Hectares of vineyards and 4 canteens owned by the Zecca counts. Every property has its own specific tie to the territory. A brilliant level of quality in all of their products
A precious and elegant range of wines, in line with style and organized brilliantly. Riccardo Cottarella has tried his best with remaining vines whilst respecting the true identity and expression of the South.
Severino Garofano is one of the founding fathers of oenology in Puglia. He has made his name by working with true dedication. Worthy of note is Le Braci that demonstrates greatly how the vines can be rounded off by picking the grapes at later stages.
