The Rizzello family owns 200 hectares of land,
of which 120 are bred with the sapling and espalier system.
The remaining part will be planted, seeking the uniqueness of the Salento territory and enhancing ancient native vines such as
Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera, Malvasia Bianca, Susumaniello and Primitivo.
The practice of a clean and sustainable agriculture is a goal that we pursue daily.
