Puglia Wine

 

Puglia (a.k.a. Apulia) is located in southeast Italy, or as many describe it, the “heel” of the boot. Flanked by the Adriatic and Ionian seas, it’s a spectacularly fertile peninsula, known for growing olives, figs, almonds, wheat and of course, wine grapes. Its Meditterranean climate is hot, with long sunny days cooled off by ocean breezes. The region has been inhabited for many centuries, with wines factoring in throughout. The Greeks, Romans, Goths, Lombards, Byzantines, Turks and Venetians all occupied the province at various stages from several centuries B.C. up until 1861, when it was officially recognized as part of Italy. 
 
Next to wine, olive oil is its biggest industry, accounting for half of Italy’s production. Red wine has come from Puglia in profuse quantities, and garnered the region a reputation for being a terrific source of “plonk” for a long time. Producers enjoyed success for this mass production, and happily churned out oceans Read more »

  • Puglia is southern Italy, every bit as much so as Campania, and even more rustic since no emperors wanted villas there, nor republics to be founded there, nor overseas kingdoms to conquer there, compared to the Tyrrehnian side of the peninsula. Lots of pirates in the old days, and many areas are bleak, poor and blasted. Very interesting cuisine,... Read More

  • If you want to do Nebbiolo at a price, Ghemme (Cantalupo is my go to) is safe ... certainly not like Campania, Puglia, Calabria, Basilicata.  I'm pretty sure the Northern secessionists would be willing to take Tuscany along with them, but according to the Padania movement, it's not part of Padania.For statistical purposes, Italy's census doesn...
