We are in one of the cradles of viticulture in the Mediterranean because, Gravina in Puglia, has thousands of years of evidence of its wine civilization, mainly related to the excellence of white wine, but not only.

The vines have always travelled together with man and Gravina is a hinge to the north with Basilicata and to the south with Campania, and to the south towards the Salento Murgia. The result is an admirable mosaic of distinctive wines for which the production rules the following typologies:

  • Gravina PDO White, also Spumante Charmat Method
  • Gravina PDO Red
  • Gravina PDO Rosé
  • Gravina PDO Raisin wine
