The property, which lies about 6 km from the Ionian coast, also includes a manor house called “Masseria” dating back to the early 1900s, a typical complex of agricultural buildings which originally acted as an organizational centre for all of the farming operations. After been refurbished the Masseria is today housing a winery of 700 sqm complete with vinification and maturation facilities. 55 hectares were planted with Primitivo, Negroamaro, Fiano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay vines. The premium fruit required is obtained as a result of strict clonal selection, modern vine training systems, and severe pruning, in order to produce a small amount of high quality wines with respect for terroir and tradition.
