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 »

  • Castello Monaci Liante Salice Salentino DOC 2006


    Classic Salice gaining sweet fruit and wild berry tones from the addition of the Malvasia (20%). The wine retains classic tarry notes on the nose that compliment the boysenberry and dried plum fruit tones but in the palate this is dark and spicy with notes of barrel ageing accenting the dried cherry and chocolate tones. A modernish take on Salic... Read More

  • Trevini Primo Merlot Primitivo 2009


    I purchased this wine in Colorado, and fell in love with it's smoothness. I've been trying to find it ever since and have not been able to purchase it. I do not like a merlot, but this blend is an exceptional wine. Excellent red wine, and am still looking to purchase it. Read More

  • Antinori Neprica Puglia IGT 2007


    Not big, but definitely earthy(clay to me), full red fruit and a slight hint of licorice & molasses. This wine put me right back to Italy. I closed my eyes and savoured the last sip wishing I was there. I agree for the $10 price, it's a great value. Read More
