Puglia’s rich soils are abundantly arable and the region has long since been a primary source of produce for the rest of Europe, 50 years ago all of Puglia’s wine towns were near a train station, so the bulk wine in tanks could be shipped north. This has changed and quality is on the up, the past 10 years has seen a rise of outside investments, particularly from northern Italy. Producers are upgrading and investing in vineyards and winery infrastructure, embracing new technologies and techniques.
Puglia’s indigenous varieties (led by the reds), to name a few are Negroamaro, Primitivo, Susumaniello these grapes are well adapted to the area and produce signature wines in talented hands. Sunny days ripen the grapes, while the largely clay based soil retain enough moisture for the sun soaked vines, wind promotes dry healthy conditions.
