Azienda Agricola Conti Zecca

Conti Zecca has a five century history made up of passion, tradition and innovation that have brought it to become one of the most important wineries in Salento and Puglia.
The Neapolitan family moved to Puglia, and more precisaly in the district of Leverano, in the heart of Salento, in 1500 and began an intense agricultural activity on his own estates.
In the course of the centuries the family concern evolved and in 1935 Count Alcibiade Zecca, a man blessed with courage and entrepreneurial abilities, decided to vinify his personal grapes cultivated on his own estates: the winery of Leverano was built and this town became one of the most important trading districts in Puglia.
After the Second World War Alcibiade 's son, Count Giuseppe, introduced new techniques of vine-growing and in the wine cellar he introduced the bottling of wine.
Since 1500 the Conti Zecca 's wine passion carries on.
Today the heirs - Count Alcibiade, Count Francesco, Count Luciano and Count Mario - carry on the family tradition devoting themselves to the family concern: from the selection of the ideal environment and the ideal clones to the planting of the vineyard, from the choice of the ideal agronomic techniques and the ideal grape harvesting time to the vinification and the bottling, for the production of high quality wines.
The direct control of the vineyards allows Conti Zecca to assure to the consumer high quality wines to a very good price.
Conti Zecca produces a large range of high quality red, rosè and white wines: from the "wines of the estates" (Cantalupi, Donna Marzia, Saraceno and Santo Stefano) tho the appreciated wines of the Selections. Among them Nero Conti Zecca, very-well reviewed by the best Italian and foreign wine guides (it is the only Apulian wine to be winning for six consecutive years with Gambero Rosso three glasses).
Nero Conti Zecca, 70% Negroamaro and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, was born by an intuition of the Zecca brothers who, in the Eighties, decided to introduce and taste on their own estates, and more precisely on Cantalupi Estate, selected clones of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Nero was commercialized for the first time in 1999 with the vintage 1997. The vintage 1998 was a great success: the wine experts immediately looked at this red wine of Puglia as a novelty in the oenological regional and national outline for the combination between an Apulian native vine (Negroamaro) and an international vine (Cabernet Sauvignon) that made it one of the best red wines of Puglia.
Beyond the famous Nero, the Selections include: Terra Conti Zecca, Cantalupi Riserva Conti Zecca, Primitivo Conti Zecca, Negramaro Conti Zecca, Cantalupi Rosè Conti Zecca, Luna Conti Zecca, Fiano Conti Zecca, Malvasia Bianca Conti Zecca and Sole Conti Zecca: high quality wines thanks to which Conti Zecca Agricultural Farm promotes in Italy and all over the world the viticultural and oenological potentialities of Salento and Puglia.

Located in Tufo, in the province of Avellino, 50 km east of Naples, the di Marzo winery is the original estate where the Greco di Tufo was first made. In 1647, Scipione di Marzo, first known ancestor of the family, left his hometown of San Paolo Belsito near the town of Nola to flee from the plague that was ravaging the region. He took with him some vines of a local white variety called at the time Greco del Vesuvio. Once settled in Tufo, he planted this variety in a region previously planted mostly in red. He became the founder of the wine Greco di Tufo. In 1648 he began the construction of the winery and the fortified house above it know

The Estate extends over a surface of approximately 500 hectares, 30 of which are planted with vineyard as specialized cultivation, 50 with century-old olive groves; 100 are cultivated as an area to be sown with seed, while the remaining part is made up of pastures and woods for the livestock, bred in the wild state, like the cattle of the Podolic breed and the black pig of Calabria. The vineyards lie in the locality known as “Timpa Bianca”, in the municipality of Cirò Marina, at just a short distance from the sea; in the hinterland “Motta”; in the village of Carfizzi and in the area of “Maradea”, in the municipality of Umbriatico.

Great passions are often sparked by little seeds. The history of Apollonio winery dates back to 1870, in the aftermath of the Italian unification. It was in the south of the Salento region – where most people made a living out of wine – that the story of Apollonio’s family began; such has succeeded in exporting Salento’s high-quality wine tradition all over the world thanks to its passion and hard work. It was 1870 when Noè Apollonio planted his own vineyard and produced wine for the first time. He did not lack experience, which he had inherited it from his father Tommaso (a producer and wine merchant born in 1828), and his grandfather Giuse
