MASSERIA ALTEMURA

Masseria Altemura is situated deep in the countryside of the districts of Torre Santa Susanna and of Oria, in the heart of the Salento Peninsula, an area permeated through and through with Mediterranean character and where the light, the breezes and the sea coalesce in a unique alchemy. 

On land where there once grew ancient bush-trained vines, tended and cared for according to the lore of age-old rural tradition - and where the bunches of grapes ripened day after day, caressed by the sun and by gentle breezes - new rows of the best indigenous grape varieties have been planted since the year 2000, in line with entirely environmentally sustainable guidelines.

Alongside the perfectly geometrically aligned vines there are 40 hectares of centuries-old olive trees which, with their roots burrowing deep into the red earth mixed with white blocks of calcareous origin and their silvery-green foliage bending in the wind, continue even today to bear fruit.
