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.

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.

  • Primo Amore Moscato 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I'm a very inexperienced drinker so I always stay away from things I'm not sure how they'll taste. I tried this at Olive Garden with the recommendation from our waiter and now I've been on the hunt to BUY it locally. It's is PERFECT. Loved it, heaven in my mouth! Could turn me into a wino. ;) Read More
