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.

La Marenna consists of the selection of cured meats and cheese in our tasting room paired to some Puglia bakery 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

Throughout the year, the winery suggests the tasting of its wines in unusual contexts and unique situations at the same time: in the vineyards with an amazing sunset or tasting the wine taken directly from the barrel, discovering in this way its slow evolution in time.

It is an innovative and strange way to drink wine. Do you remember what Jessica said to Ivano in the film Viaggi di nozze (Honeymoon) directed and starred by Carlo Verdone? Well, the motto “Beviamolo Strano” get the inspiration from “Famolo Strano” (Let’s do it strange) of the bizarre roman couple.
