Tune-in each Thursday as we bring you the great interviews that unfolded over the course of 3 days.
More about today’s winery:
The origins of Santa Lucia date back to 1628 when Marc Antonio Perrone earned 60 annual ducats of feudal revenue above the town of Quarati. Quarati is the modern day Corato, where on the Santa Lucia holding at about 300 meters above sea level, entirely organically farmed, one finds the selected clones of local vines from the Murgia area: Nero di Troia for red wines, Bombino Nero for Rosè, and Fiano for white wine.
Murgia is located in the foothills of Castel del Monte, the famous octagonal Norman domain commissioned by the Swabian Emperor Federico II, and its soil is mainly calcareous.
