THE RURAL CHURCH
The sacred building preserves inside a magnificent fresco dated 1691, by the great artist Gaetano Bianchi.
THE GARDEN OF LOVE
It is the land on which the cuttings, the primitive shoots, chosen by the spouses are planted. It is located in the area in front of the farm and is entirely enclosed by ancient dry stone walls. During the Birth Rite, the spouses enter the garden of love and water the rooted cuttings after having delicately planted it in a vase made from a barrique. The magic of love dwells in this place.
THE WINERY OF ZAKYNTHOS
It is the historic cellar of the Masseria dedicated to Massaro Zacinto, inspiration of the first Primitivo wines. It is located in the heart of the central body of the farm and consists of two large starry vaulted halls of about 90 square meters each. It is the cathedral in which the birth of the primitive and some rites are celebrated. For this reason it is not available for catering or banqueting activities.
THE CENTURY OLIVE GROVE
The centuries-old olive trees, like gentle giants, accompany the gaze of the guests for 80 hectares.
The land in front of the Masseria where the oldest vineyards are located is called Conca d’oro, a toponym that derives from the fertility of the water-rich soil. The vineyard, of about 40 hectares, enjoys the microclimate of the centuries-old wood of Cuturi,a protected nature reserve that is lost as far as the eye can see, merging with the sea in the distance.
THE DOOR OF DIONYSUS
It is the place where the most important rite of the Wine Wedding celebration takes shape, the Rite of Dionysus. Here there are white benches where guests sit with a splendid view of the Conca D’oro. It is here under the two stone pillars that lead to the vineyard that the spouses combine the masses of wine they have chosen, creating that unique wine that will represent their love.

THE BELVEDERE TERRACE
The Masseria is crowned by a splendid terrace of about 300 square meters which overlooks the vineyards, the woods and Monte dei Diavoli, the hill which dominates the property. It is here that the bride and groom can welcome their guests for a breathtaking aperitif while watching the sun set behind the woods, looking at the sea in the distance.
