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.

Choices for you

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

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. Presently

The winery, called "La Mincana", is a storical family-owned estate in the Euganean Hills zone of Veneto region ( north-east Italy). In 20 ha of vineyards produce quality red and white wines like Rosso, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Serprino ( a local sparkling white wine very similar to the most known Prosecco) and others. All wines have the Colli Euganei Doc appelation

The Roberto Balugani farm is located on the sunny side of the first hills you encounter upon reaching Levizzano Rangone from Castelvetro, along the Sinistra Guerro route. This charming farm was chosen in 1910 by Venerio Boni, who had built on the estate of Casa Paoli the farmstead that is today the heart of our company. Thereafter, in 1920, the nephew Cavalier Mario Balugani engaged in the art of creating Lambrusco wine with a deep love, a process starting from the vineyard and ending with the bottle. Today visiting our company you can enjoy the breathtaking view from the ridge from which in beautiful symmetry span out the rows of vines th

The vine-growing and wine-producing farm “Il Greppo”, based in the wine area of vino Nobile di Montepulciano, is firmly determined to place a higher price on the peculiarities of this area thanks to the use of selected clones that have been planted in the Greppo lands, specially suited to the vine growing as it is even described in some historical documents. As a matter of fact this ground, of Pliocene origin, made up of clay rich in potassium, of yellow sands (tufa), of crushed and pudding stones mixed up with giant shells, allows to get high quality grapes and hence “Vino Nobile”, “of all wines the king” as the Tuscan poet Francesco Redi d
