Puglia is a region of southern Italy in the heel of the boot-shaped country. It is home to many wineries and powerful red wines which reigns supreme for quality and popularity. The Negroamaro grape is one of the chief varieties in Puglia, while Salice Salentino is the most famous wine from this grape variety.
Puglia is surrounded by water on three sides allowing cool breezes off the Mediterranean to moderate vineyard temperatures as Puglian wine is the product of a diverse landscape. The warm climate and fertile soil make it easy to grow almost anything. Half of Italy’s olive oil is produced in the dry heat of Puglia.
Most vineyards in these areas are small plots held by local families that have grown grapes for generations. The cellars at Coppa Casa Vinicola are particularly worth a visit for its fascinating history dating back to 1882. A great way to explore this region is by wine tasting and lunch with a winegrower in the middle of the vineyards, where one can also find luxury accommodation to stay and enrich the experience
The region is diverse with the grape varieties such as Primitivo , Nero di Troia, Negroamaro, Aglianico for the reds and Fiano Minutolo, Moscato, Bombino Bianco, Greco for the whites.
