A Little History …

In 1962, 19 vine growers from San Marzano, whose families had farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish ‘Cantine San Marzano’. Through the decades this cooperative has grown significantly, attracting over 1,200 vine growers.

Using modern and technologically advanced vinification techniques, they produce elegant wines that pay homage to the ancient Apulian wine traditions. The fusion of time honoured tradition, passion and contemporary techniques enables this winery to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characteristics while reflecting the local terroir.

In the Sommelier Wine Awards, San Marzano was awarded European Producer of the Year 2017.

Verdeca ‘Talò’ 2019

Verdeca is a rare white wine grape variety from southern Italy, now found almost exclusively in the Taranto and Bari provinces of central Puglia. 

There is evidence suggesting that Verdeca, like many Italian grape varieties, may have originated further east in the Mediterranean, in either Croatia or Greece.

This is a bone-dry Verdeca which shows a richness of aromatics: white flowers, crisp green apple and a hint of honey. Full flavoured, with a creamy texture and a long and intense finish.
