Puglia and its delicious wines

Our Puglia region has a large geographical extension, so much so that for convenience it is divided into 3 macro-areas: Gargano in the north, Valle D’Itria in the centre, Salento in the south. In each of these, there are specific geological and microclimatic characteristics that make certain crops more adaptable and productive than others. Similarly, Apulian wines are divided into 3 types: red, white and rosé. Specific vines are used to produce them, differing in quality, productivity and geographical location. Below is a brief of the best Apulian vines:

  • Uva di troia;
