soci feudi di guagnano

Tasting a wine is an extraordinary and unique experience, above all if it is done at the winery, where it is possible to get slowly shades, hints, features and the story of the same winery.

Thanks to our several wine experiences, you will be able to learn more about the place where the negroamaro, the most important Puglia grape variety, is cultivated; furthermore, you will be able to visit both the organic vines saved from the photovoltaic business and the sunny vineyards of Malvasia Nera di Lecce; yet, you will learn more about the origins of Nero di Velluto, our most known and awarded wine.

La Marenna

The Salento word “Marenna”, coming from the old Neapolitan dialect, means afternoon snack. The origin of the name is connected to the sea and to the mariners, since one of the main ingredients of “la marenna” was the anchovies cured in brine.

However, the peasant meaning was different, since “la marenna” was a sort of fast and frugal breakfast that people used to have in the shade of a high tree or in the so called “pagghiara”, an ancient rural building made with stones. “La marenna” was usually prepared with the mariners’ ancient bread, that is the “frisa”, or with a slice of durum wheat bread, both seasoned with small tomatoes (the hanged yellow ones in winter), dried vegetables, such as marrows, aubergines, oregano and, on demand, with salted anchovies and spring onions. A good olive oil was the final ingredient.

At the winery “la marenna” has several versions depending on the season and the availability of fresh products.

Mr Negroamaro

Negroamaro is the most common grape variety in Puglia, even though its true story is still unknown. The name, in fact, has uncertain origins: it is thought that it may come from the dialect words “niuru maru” (black and bitter) or from the combination of the Latin word “niger” and the Greek one “mavros”, which are, both, expression of the typical black colour of the grapes. This experience will lead you through the discovery of some important red and rosè wines.

Besides you will learn more about Salento cultivation methods and the ageing process of Negroamaro and Primitivo.

LET’S DRINK IT STRANGE

Tasting of some still fermenting negroamaros belonging to the last harvest, but only in October and November.

The guests will have the unrepeatable occasion to taste a wine from its origin to the final bottling.

In the following months, when the musts are already wine, the guests will have the chance to taste some wines from the barrels in order to learn more about their slow evolution. This is an original and strange way to taste a wine. The name of this unusual experience comes from a sentence of the Italian comedy “Viaggi di Nozze” (Honeymoon) where one of the odd female main character says to her husband, in Roman dialect: “let’s do that strange”.
