A historic ‘Masseria’ graced by the splendour of sunlight of Puglia and the breeze of two seas

About the winery
Located in the beautiful Salento Peninsula, an area with a long history but which is now looking determinedly forward towards the future, the Masseria Altemura Estate’s mission is to offer a new perspective on the wines from the Southern Italian Region of Apulia. Geographically the Estate lies in the centre of Apulia, between the Ionian and the Adriatic Seas which lap the shores of the region. A unique maritime climate and abundant sunlight provide Masseria Altemura with very favourable conditions for grape growing.

History & Geography
Masseria Altemura lies in the heart of the Salento Peninsula, almost equidistant from Puglia’s two seas: the Ionian (20 km) and the Adriatic (16 km), in the famous wine area of Primitivo di Manduria. A unique location where the breezes of two seas meet and contribute to the creationof an extraordinary microclimate. Today the estate extends for 270 ha and encompasses the ancient masseria, the winery, the vineyards and the olive trees in one single unit.The surface area planted with vines totals 130 ha. The soil is composed of a mixture of elements in which the red clay soil of Salento and white calcareous rocks predominate. The rocky and mineral-rich soil is evidence of how these lands were once covered by sea water.
