Cantine San Marzano


Francesco Cavallo

REGION: Puglia

The Cantina San Marzano winery was established in 1962 in the region of San Marzano, situated near San Marzano di San Giuseppe in northern Salento. At its inception, nineteen winemakers came together to form the winery long before the creation of the appellation of origin and the recognition of Primitivo di Manduria, driven purely by a shared dream. 

Today, the cooperative boasts over twelve hundred winegrowers as part of its network. Located within the D.O.P. Primitivo di Manduria, nestled between the Ionian and Adriatic Seas, the winery's vineyards endure occasional severe weather conditions, including droughts, frost, and desert winds from the south/southeast originating from the Sahara and sweeping across the Mediterranean. 

The winegrowers at the Cantine San Marzano cooperative are dedicated to maximizing the yield of their vines, even the oldest ones. They achieve this by employing a blend of traditional winemaking practices and cutting-edge technology, ensuring that ripe fruit is transformed into refined wines of exceptional quality. Today, the winery offers a diverse portfolio featuring a wide range of sparkling and still wines, including white, red, and rosé varieties. Beyond wines, the winery also produces an array of other products such as spirits and olive oil.

Wine Region:


Also known as Apulia, the region of Puglia is located at the heel of the boot that is southern Italy. Despite the region’s name coming from the word “a-pulvia”(or “lack of rain”), it is a significant producer of grapes for both the table and wine. Terroir is mostly Mediterranean; warm and sunny with an Adriatic breeze on limestone-rich soil near and along the coastline that’s longest among all Italian regions. 

Puglia is the second largest Italian wine region alongside Sicily, with the former mostly known as a source of grapes than a source of wine, although winemakers do reside here albeit in smaller numbers. Aside from the Adriatic Sea to its east, the Ionian Sea is at its southeast, while the Gulf of Taranto and Strait of Otranto are to its south. 

Featured Grape Varieties: 
Sauvignon Blanc 
Malvasia Nera
