Puglia - Wine that concentrates on quality

Viticulture in Puglia dates back to the Phoenician era, but it was the Romans who were the first to appreciate Apulian wines, the Poet Orazio actually compared them to Falerno, considered the most sought-after wine of the era. Phylloxera however devastated almost the entirety of the vineyards.

However, that period was not without some positives; the producers took advantage of the loss to make qualitative changes in their production system and concentrating on quality with the introduction of Negroamaro and Primitivo grape varieties. The success was so substantial and widespread that even today these vines represent the best Apulian oenology in the world.

Apulia, the heel of Italy is 350 km long, has 2 seas: Ionio and Adriatic and is the second (sometimes third) wine producing region after Veneto and sometimes Sicily.
