Italy’s largest wine producing region and the heel of the boot, Puglia, is a new discovery for any wine lover.
Puglia wine dates back to Phoenician times and the Greeks named Puglia “Enotria”, Wineland. Often referred to as the wine cellar of Europe” because in the past it primarily produced wine sent to the rest of Italy and Europa for structure and alcohol content in blending.
