Conti Zecca winery in Puglia, Italy, has a five century history made up of passion, tradition and innovation that have brought it to become one of the most important wine producers of Puglia and Italy. The Neapolitan family moved to Puglia, and more precisaly in the district of Leverano, in the heart of Salento, South Italy, in 1500 and began an intense agricultural activity on his own estates. In the course of the centuries the family concern evolved and in 1935 Count Alcibiade Zecca, a man blessed with courage and entrepreneurial abilities, decided to vinify his personal grapes cultivated on his own estates: the wine cellar of Leverano was built and this town became one of the most important trading districts in Puglia and South Italy. After the Second World War Alcibiade 's son, Count Giuseppe, introduced new techniques of vine-growing and in the winery he introduced the bottling of wine. Since 1500 the Conti Zecca 's wine passion carries on. Today the heirs - Count Alcibiade, Count Francesco, Count Luciano and Count Mario - carry on the family tradition devoting themselves to the family concern: from the selection of the ideal environment and the ideal clones to the planting of the vineyard, from the choice of the ideal agronomic techniques and the ideal grape harvesting time to the vinification and the bottling, for the production of high quality wines, considered among the best wines of Puglia.
