The Conca d’oro, whose toponym derives from the fertility of its soils, rich in water, with the presence of five artesian wells and two natural sources have made this land particularly generous and productive: a true Eden.
The current vineyard of about 40 hectares enjoys the microclimate of the secular forest of Cuturi, a protected nature reserve on the eastern Salento coast.
A single plot, near the Ionian sea, guarded and protected by dry stone walls that border the different particles, where ancient primitive clones have been planted, each with different peculiarities.
We find very dark and clayey soils alternating with more marly and slightly silty areas. The soils are deep and soft and are very rich in organic matter. To avoid excessive plant vigor, we sow grasses to oxygenate the roots of our vines and create healthy competition.
We follow an organic cultivation based on safeguarding the natural organic
substance of the soil, trying to enhance biodiversity as much as possible.
