“Cantina Sampietrana produces unique wines in a style that centres on a great body, elegance and complexity.”
The soils in Puglia are influenced by their location at the extreme end of Italy. Here subsoils are based on Mesozoic limestone, marl, and residual deposits giving to the vines a terrific start. The Salento, and the Murge (a calcareous plateau) represent the top sites of the region where the soil is basically limestone, with a mixture of iron oxide that gives that red colour.
A Passionate Lineage
Cantina Sampietrana was established in 1952, following a Land reform the government initiated for redistribution of agricultural land, transferring ownership to small farmers or newly formed cooperatives. This winery is located in the historic centre of San Pietro Vernotico, maintaining true traditions, as well as adapting to the challenges and opportunities of the global market. Every year by working on new technology, quality and service we increased our world market presence. Cantina Sampietrana has been producing some of the best value wines of the region since the 1950s. They specialise in the native grapes of Puglia and all of their wines have a lively freshness that is all too rare in the region.
