Culture, food, wine and tourism: welcome to the territory

of the Primitivo di Manduria

A unique journey between land and sea, punctuated by dry stone walls built, and maintained, with painstaking patience, which limit thousands of plots cared for with passion and centenary patience. Expanses of mostly sapling vineyards, in the most modern, ordered and sequential forms and in the most ancient, disordered and irregular forms. Vineyards that reach the sea, olive trees that alternate with vineyards, churches, palaces and farms.

It is the territory of the Primitivo, the vine that matures prematurely and is harvested at the end of August and which has, like very few other examples, a geographical area with a cultural and folkloristic imprint that runs south-east from Taranto. The area of the primitivo which has its culmination in Manduria, in the more distant province of Taranto, also embraces Talsano, San Giorgio Jonico, Carosino, Monteparano, Leporano, Pulsano, Faggiano, Roccaforzata, Lizzano, Fragagnano, San Marzano di San Giuseppe, Sava, Torricella, Maruggio, Avetrana and, in the province of Brindisi, Oria, Erchie and Torre Santa Susanna.

Today Primitivo di Manduria binds, supports and enhances this whole territory: the Protection Consortium gathers a team of 60 wineries and is called to protect this great protected designation of origin which, for some years now, has established itself among the admirers and it is now widespread worldwide.

In these lands, wine tourism enthusiasts will be able to appreciate the ancient farming practices and modern winemaking techniques also thanks to tours in the vineyards that the various wineries offer. in addition to the various tastings combined with good local food. The link between wine and territory is very close, which gives these places a particular charm, which tells an ancient story and smells of tradition.

There are many possible itineraries: naturalistic (the marine reserves of the Salina dei Monaci in Torre Colimena, the Campomarino Dunes, the Palude del Conte, the protected areas of the Chidro and Burraco rivers, the protected area of the Bosco di Cuturi and Rosamarina ), cultural (rock churches, Basilian caves, archaeological sites of Magna Graecia and the fascinating pre-Roman civilization of the Messapi, the Baroque, etc.), folkloristic and local traditions (various festivals and processions including the rites of Holy Week, the grape harvest festival, the bonfires of San Giuseppe) and food and wine events with musical performances, without forgetting Calici di Stelle and Cantine Aperte.
