Estate Information

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. In 1962 the DOC appellation did not yet exist, and the Primitivo di Manduria was far from becoming a cult wine for wine lovers. Even so, 19 winemakers came together to follow a dream and founded Cantine San Marzano.

Winery Notes

In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano, whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish Cantine San Marzano. Now in this cooperative there are 1200 winegrowers, and it has become one of the most popular and well-known winery from Puglia. Just the bond with the land is the starting point for the work of this winery. Not surprisingly, Cantine San Marzano is devoted mainly to two great red grapes of Puglia: Primitivo and Negroamaro. For those who still do not know the value of the red wines of Puglia, Cantine San Marzano is definitely the right choice: in its the bottles you will find the connection between love for the land and a clever innovation. To confirm this, we need only mention the numerous positive appreciations and the opinions of all the major guides. In addition to the red wines, Cantine San Marzano is also dedicated to the sweet wines, with the great variation of Primitivo Passito. All bottles confirm the potential of Puglia, a land that, year after year, is gathering more and more support, thanks to a policy production focused on the quest for quality. Quality is just the cardinal principle of the production of the Cantine San Marzano, which, thanks to their bottles, wants to know the most authentic and valuable side of his Puglia
