Territory
Our countryside lies between two seas, the Ionian and the Adriatic, in the community of Francavilla Fontana and borders on the community of Oria, located in the region of Salento. The position is one of the last prominent areas in the South along the of Murge mountains and the hills of Oria, with an average altitude of about 140 meters made up of limestone . The climate is mild , purified by breezes coming off the seas which is particularly favored by the finer vines. The average temperature oscillates from 9 degrees Celsius in the coldest months to 26 degrees Celsius in the summer months.

Being so, the legendary local grapes, such as Primitivo, Malvasie and Negroamaro, grow side by side with Chardonnay, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon with their IGT Salento and/or Puglia.


Walking through the stupendous countryside one can marvel at wonders like the Oria Castle, expanded by King Federico II of Sweden in 1225 or the Madonna Gallana Church, that according to legend was built by Carlo Magno’s wife Galerana, in the VIII century. In every season of the year the folklore of these places astonishes tourists because of their variety of expressions. Traditional festivals and events like the “ Nights of the Royals”, “The Tournament of the Districts”, as well as religious manifestations including the traditional pilgrimage of “Pappamusci” and the religious processions during Holy week. The land is full of history, tradition and passion which lends to the magic found in the wine grapes and additionally inspires our efforts.
