Puglia-Grapes and Wine Tour

Written by Aksel Ritenis


Puglia has a treasure of indigenous grapes that many wine lovers in and outside of the region, want to preserve and celebrate. Puglian winemaking is made with minimum use of chemicals. It produces more than any other Italian region (about 17% of the total): it boasts 26 different DOC and 6 IGT areas and some excellent vintages of its own. 90% of Puglia’s fast-growing number of bottled wines is sold outside Italy. There are red, rosè and white wines. The most important local white berry grapes are: Malvasia Bianca, Fiano, Moscato Bianco, Bombino Bianco and Vermentino, Verdeca, Aleatico.
