5/5 (2)

In this post we will try to tell you which are the best Apulian wine shops that you cannot miss during your stay or holiday in this magical land. Always celebrated for its extraordinary food and wine tradition (such as the famous extra virgin olive oil) and thanks to its geological conformation, this region has managed to carve out a very special space among the top Italian and international wine producers. Even the recent successes signed by Gambero Rosso certify the authenticity and commitment of local wine producers in recent years, making every wine tasting tour in Puglia an adventure definitely not to be missed.

Good examples are the Primitivo di Gioia del Colle, the Negroamaro and the Susumaniello. This is also thanks to the green hills dotted with vineyards and the coasts bathed by the clear waters of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas which influence the growth of the grapes and their fermentation. Therefore, it is obvious that a stop in a typical Apulian winehouse is obligatory for anyone passing through these parts! In fact, to discover the authentic Apulian wine spirit, there is no better way than to visit its renowned wine shops and cellars, taking home a very special multi-sensory memory. Here nelow we will try to summarize which are – according to Terrachevive’s experience – the best winehouse in Puglia that you absolutely cannot miss.
