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.

A company born to a passion ripened during the holidays in wine areas of France. A passion that led Marco and Daniela to buy, in 1999, a small vineyard on the Mezzomerico’s hills. Since then just a hobby became gradually an activity that leads three hectares of vineyard entered the designation of origin controlled Colline Novaresi. From the outset their philosophy is based on "low yields to work on the quality", then the choice to make vineyards with sixths of plant close and a high density, 5,000 7,000 plants to hectare, with yields which do not exceed the 7,0 tons per hectare. The vines Guyot pruned, are Nebbiolo, Vespolina, Barbera and Er

On our estate there is a vineyard which is carefully attended to throughout the year, both by specialists and by people like ourselves who love nature and the fruits of the land. The lay out of the vines, the diversity of the grapes and the care that they are given make it a pleasant sight, as well as giving a top quality wine. A photograph of the vineyard can make an ideal souvenir of the area, which unlike the product itself, will last indefinitely!

The idea of Castel Venus originates from the owner’s passion for vineyards and wine, which assisted by professionals of this field, has dedicated years to the cultivation of these and the making of good quality wine. Our most cultivated varieties today are: Nero d'Avola, Cataratto, Ansonica and Grillo, while among the international vineyards, we have Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Chardonnay. Our company reaches out to 43 hectares (about 51.400 sq. yds) of cultivated land of the fertile territory of the Erice hills, in the province of Trapani. The climate conditions of this area of western Sicily, such as the constant ven

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.
