The Azienda Agrobiologica Antica Enotria is located in the province of Foggia, just a few kilometres from the Gulf of Manfredonia, near the salt works of Margherita di Savoia, in Posta Uccello.
On these lands, they grow indigenous grapes such as Nero di Troia, Aglianico, Montepulciano and Falanghina. They train the vines to grow in the “Pugliese trellis” and the “espalier” methods, implementing the biological farming system.
All their wines are “bottled by the winemaker” to guarantee their origin.
Antica Enotria was established in 1993 when the founder Raffaele Di Tuccio, farmer for generations, has converted his fields to organic farming, and started to vinify his grapes in the ancient Masseria Staffa, building of 1700, now fully restored.
The extension is of 40 Hectares with an annual production of 100.000 bottles of high quality wines. But the product range also includes preserves in oil of artichokes and dried tomatoes, extravergin oils and Table Olives of Cerignola all very interesting for their simplicity and authenticity.
In these fifteen years Antica Enotria has received several quality certificates from Gambero Rosso, Slow Food, Meran International Wine Festival, and other wine guides. In 2007 the Falanghina has received the Oscar Quality price from Gambero Rosso and all other wines have received good scores and reviews from Italian wines guides.
