VIGNETI REALE - Quality Wines from Apulia
The "Vigneti Reale Srl" produces a range of superb quality wines from the deep south of Italy, in the ‘heel’ of the italian peninsula, an area well known for its rich, fruity and full bodied wines.
At the moment the production is based on 8 labels, 7 wines and one Extra Vergin Olive Oil: White Malvasia, Black Malvasia, Malvasia Rosè, Chardonnay, Negroamaro and Primitivo/Zinfandel, all of them IGT/IGP standards and all made from the corresponding grape. The winery’s “cru” is the Santa Croce - Salice Salentino Riserva DOC/DOP.
The properties are located in the heart of the ‘Salento’ production area (south Apulia), on 250 hectares (600 acres) of rich land with an ancient wine-making tradition.
The landscape is flat and generous, the soil calcareous and tending to orange, the climate is typically mediterranean with brief and rainy winters, long dry summers, and a constant breeze.
The Reale's have owned the property for over one hundred years and have been making wine since the early 20th century: the commitment to produce only the best wines, after so many vintages, makes them one of the most respected wine producers of the entire Apulian region.
