Abruzzo, Italy: Cantine San Marzano

San Marzano is a small village in the centre of the Primitivo di Manduria DOC region, a strip of land kissed by the two seas of the Salento: the Ionian and the Adriatic. Our promise was made in 1962, when 19 local grape-growers, “the founding fathers”, who had started farming their soils in the 1950s, combined their efforts to create a cooperative and build a winery. re are 1200 winegrowers, and it has become one of the most popular and well-known winery from Puglia. The decades followed and brought with them a natural evolution in the cooperative, the physical site and the products themselves and resulted in a progressive new style winery, nowadays committed to creating elegant wines, without forgetting the obligation to the very old Apulian wine tradition. Now in Cantine San Marzano there are 1200 winegrowers, and it has become one of the most popular and well-known winery from Puglia.
