The history of our winery, surrounded by the picturesque landscape of the Itria Valley, began in the 70’s, when granddad Giuseppe and his son Franco bought a winery on the outskirts of Locorotondo and established what is now one of the oldest and most prestigious family-run wineries in Puglia, already in its third generation with Marianna and her brother Vito. This was a choice that was in line with the changes taking place in those years in the entire region of the “Tavoliere”. It was then that Puglia decided to stop being the “reservoir” of northern Italy and began producing quality wines. Today’s winery owes everything to the initiative of Giuseppe Cardone, the eldest of seven children and a man of great intelligence and intuition. A histrionic person who, although living in the countryside, did not work the land, he devoted himself to commerce (buying and selling everything that he could). In the late 60’s he began to attend the wine markets of the northern regions, in particular those of Asti, Milan and Verona.
