Vecchia Torre is an Italian winery located in the region of Puglia. It was founded in the 1950s by a group of local grape growers who came together to share their knowledge and expertise in winemaking. Today, Vecchia Torre is one of the largest and most respected wineries in Puglia, producing a wide range of high-quality wines that showcase the unique terroir of the region.
The winery is located in the heart of Salento, a sub-region of Puglia known for its warm, sunny climate and fertile soils. The winemaking team at Vecchia Torre takes great care to produce wines that are expressive of the region's unique terroir, using traditional winemaking techniques and modern technology to craft wines that are both authentic and contemporary.
Some of the grape varieties grown by Vecchia Torre include Primitivo, Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera, and Fiano. These grapes are carefully selected and harvested by hand, then fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel tanks and oak barrels to produce wines that are rich, complex, and balanced.
In addition to its range of still wines, Vecchia Torre also produces a range of sparkling wines using the traditional method, as well as a selection of sweet wines and dessert wines. The winery's flagship wine is the Primitivo di Manduria Riserva, a rich and full-bodied red wine that is widely regarded as one of the best wines produced in Puglia.
