We’re passionately, profoundly, even pathologically pugliese.

With us, you won’t just see the place we love, you’ll cannonball into it – into our traditions, into the kitchen and into Southern Italian life, taking your own place around the generous table.

Sure, you’ll learn our regional recipes and develop a crush on our local grape varietals, but you’ll go deeper, learning to see the history, local culture, climate, migration patterns and indigenous viticulture practices, as the more beautiful and intriguing elements of everything you’ll put in your mouth.

And it’s also more fun, when you sidestep the clichés and really go deep.
