Vigne e Vini

Puglia

This family company is run by Cosimo Varvaglione and his wife Maria Teresa Basile. Benefiting from some of the best vineyard sites, they have invested heavily in vineyards and winemaking facilities and now produce a range of wines which provide typical southern ripeness whilst retaining finesse and delicacy.

It helps that they are able to select from the very best vineyard sites for their own label, as much of the fruit from these extensive vineyards is still sold in bulk. Malvasia is made from a lovely indigenious grape to the Puglia region; Papale is from low-yielding Primitivo, harvested from some of the oldest vineyards near the sea. The area was the source of some of Pope Benedetto XIII’s favourite wines, and as a result has become known as ‘Papale’ in the 18th Century.
