Embark on adventure as you experience some of the best wine tours in Puglia with the help of our local travel expert
Puglia or Apulia for an English-speaker is a region in Southern Italy bordering the Adriatic Sea to the east, the Ionian Sea to the southeast, and the Strait of Òtranto and Gulf of Taranto to the south. Its southernmost portion, known as the Salento peninsula, forms a "tacco" or heel on the boot of Italy. It has the largest coasts for any region on mainland Italy.
The north and south of Puglia are much different from one another. The northern part is hillier while the southern is plain and coastal and has a strong influence of the Greco-Roman empire. As with the topography and the climate, the wines grown in these two regions have their differences as well. The north and south both are known for their production of olives and grapes.
They make red and white wines made from local grape varieties like Sangiovese and Montepulciano among others. The hot Mediterranean climate, sunshine and cool sea breezes together make for a perfect environment for viticulture.
