Wines from Apulia
Apulian wines are among the most appreciated Italian food and wine specialities abroad, thanks especially to their unmistakable characteristics. The most famous wines of the region reveal a generous, intense, soft and textured character; the result of soils suited to viticulture, of rich and productive vines, of the beneficial influence of the sea and of the remarkable exposure to the sun. In addition to the Salento area, home to national treasures such as Negroamaro and Primitivo, which are made into red or rosé wines, areas of production such as the Murgie are becoming increasingly important, where red grapes are flanked by white grapes such as Verdeca, Minutolo and Moscato, or the Foggiano and Daunia, in the Tavoliere, where Bombino Bianco is grown alongside Nero di Troia. Today, quality labels are produced throughout the region and the whole area, from the Gargano to the heel, offers a great variety of indigenous grape varieties and local specialties to be discovered and enjoyed.
