300 miles of fertile soils, sunshine, a sea breeze have long produced some of the world’s most popular grape varieties. Today Apulian wines are famous in their own right, and our deeply knowledgeable sommelier is eager to share their passion.
According to your expertise they may begin with how to look at the light in a wine, how it moves in the glass, the vocabulary of tasting or the best food pairings. You will discover a Negroamaro is salty but underneath has a smoothness, is balanced, persistent and good with octopus tomato stew, while a greenish, flowery Fiano white is perfect with prawn tartar.
Puglia’s passion is food, our chefs can teach you how to perfect a peppery pignata octopus, or focaccia pugliese.
Tour in Italian style with the breeze in your hair on a Vespa or in a cute cinquecento, country lanes will take you through olive groves, vineyards and historic towns.
