It has a modern production plant and a new more efficient and stable structure compared to before. From the old grape collection center, born a modern glass structure used as a gourmet restaurant, and on the lower floor – the ancient wine tanks – the wines rest in wooden barrels.
Vignaioli Pugliesi focused its attention on Nero di Troia wine because accurate historical research shows that this grape variety has been born exactly in Cinque Reali Siti territory, in Orta Nova, where the winery is located. The technical team has implemented agronomic and oenological practices to enhance the peculiarities of this grape variety and decided to apply specific rules about the choice of plots of land, in organic agriculture, and that must respect exact morphological features, using a sustainable and innovative production chain.
