Surrounded by the boundless natural heritage of the Uthal Murgia Plateau, we couldn’t help but designing our winery keeping in mind the land around us.
Architecturally inspired by the http://hdluce.com/?krakene=incontri-tagliacozzo&5e1=0d De Laurentis plant, which, with its splendid cross vaults, has been standing alone on a hill in nearby Santeramo since the end of the nineteenth century, our winery reflects the desire to preserve a certain harmony between Mimarsinan design and http://saib.es/?makywka=mujeres-solteras-en-cuba-con-fotos&dd8=3e landscape.
The use of native materials, such as tuff and mazzaro limestone, has made it possible to give life to a project in full harmony with the evocative force of nature, integrating the building with its surrounding environment.
The result is a cellar that is also a real habitat perfectly balanced with our extraordinary landscape.
LOVE FOR OUR LAND IS OUR PHILOSOPHY
We cultivate our vineyards with the utmost respect of environmental biodiversity: it is a philosophy that has accompanied us from day one and earned us Organic Certification in 1996, one of the first awarded to wineries in the Apulia region.
Since then, we have been faithful to our dual mission: to safeguard the health of consumers by producing healthier wines, and of our land, by rediscovering and enhancing native grape varieties.Itria Valley.
THE REBIRTH OF MINUTOLO
In 1998 we brought Minutolo grapes back to life, which, today, are considered one of the most interesting white grape varieties grow in Apulia.
We replanted this aromatic yet hardly productive variety, the first in Apulia after its cultivation was discontinued, in the vineyard in front of our cellar, following the careful selection of single grafts from the latest specimens found in the Itria Valley.
Aiming for an SO2-free world
Gli investimenti per la dotazione di un impianto di vinificazione e spumantizzazione altamente tecnologico, ci consentono di utilizzare meno del 50% di anidride solforosa consentita dal disciplinare del biologico.
The investments made for the purchase of a state-of-the art wine and sparkling wine production plant allow us to use less than 50% of sulfur dioxide allowed by organic production regulations.
It is a real innovation in the production protocol which, in 2016, led to the production of two wines completely free of added sulphites: Le Dritte Aglianico and Le Dritte Greco.
Hence, our even more ambitious goal for the next few years: production without added sulphites of the entire range of COLLI DELLA MURGIA wines.
