Apulia and its wonderful Salento. A land historically suited to viticulture. A territory where getting lost is one of the most pleasant activities you can do
The vines of LA PRUINA, an amazing winery in Torre Santa Susanna, in the province of Brindisi, have their roots in this beautiful corner of the world
The winery was founded in the 80s in the heart of Salento, but the vocation for family viticulture has much older origins and has been handed down for generations
The respect of the traditional model is one of the fundamental principle of LA PRUINA, continuously supported by the search for quality and elegance in the glass
The vineyards are small and bred according to biological methods and with manual care. The varieties are typical of Apulia and Salento: Primitivo and Negroamaro
Award-winning winery for the quality of its wines, with very high scores on the most renowned wine guides, such as that of Luca Maroni (IlMorante elected best red wine in Italy)
