La nostra azienda si estende per 21 ettari di cui 15 vitati da cui produciamo circa 10.000 bottiglie l’anno.
I nostri vigneti sono situati a San Pancrazio Salentino, a pochi chilometri dal mare di Torre Lapillo, nel territorio Salice Salentino DOC, noto per la sua spiccata vocazione vitivinicola.
Le particolari condizioni pedoclimatiche sono date dalla vicinanza al mare, dalla presenza di vento e brezze costanti e da una grande escursione termica tra il giorno e la notte. Inoltre il nostro territorio presenta un clima asciutto con pochissime piogge nel periodo di maturazione delle uve. I terreni sono profondi e perfettamente drenati. Tutti fattori che conferiscono ai nostri vini una grande struttura e opulenza.
La tradizione dei gesti, semplici e sapienti dei contadini che si tramandano da generazioni hanno reso il nostro territorio tra i più rinomati per la coltivazione di importanti vitigni quali Negroamaro, Primitivo, Fiano e Susumaniello.
