Hard earth and dry climates make for an exhausting environment; in fact, growing vines in these conditions is practically seen as a sign of madness (or Pazzia in Italian). In Puglia, in the heart of Salento, a rare few precious vineyards have been cultivated for generations, whether for passion or Pazzia.
A true representation of Salento’s typical products, the Pazzia range of wines is dominated by two main grape varieties, Primitivo and Negroamaro.
These native Apulian grapes produce well-structured red wines but also fresh and delicate rosés. Pazzia wines stand out thanks to their pleasantness and balanced structure. They are smooth, elegant and modern yet, at the same time, constantly allude to tradition.
The region of Salento, located at the southernmost tip of the Apulian peninsula, has been dedicated to viticulture for generations. It is a melting pot of different peoples, ethnic groups and passions where the age-old tradition of viticulture and wine production has evolved until the present day by improving its practices and techniques, all whilst fascinating the world with its narratives.
