Tormaresca

Tormaresca

New World wines from the Old World: first settled by the Greeks in the 8th c BC, over the centuries Puglia has been colonised by Romans, Turks, Slavs, Normans & Spaniards. Evidence of this long history is seen in the region’s ancient coastal towers overlooking the Adriatic Sea – hence the name, Tormaresca. Acquired by Antinori in1998 as the Puglian gem of their collection. The philosophy is to produce great wines from indigenous varietals that date back to the Magna Grecia, when all Southern Italy was known as Enotria – the land of wine. Tormaresca leads Puglia’s modern renaissance by combining classic winemaking with the latest viticulture techniques to create exceptional wines.

A tale of Wines, Apulian Sun and warm sea.

Passion, courage and confidence in the immense potential Apulia has to offer in terms of quality are all elements that inspired the Antinori family to invest in this region, in particular in the Salento area.

The vision behind the Tormaresca winery was to produce top quality wines from Apulia’s indigenous grape varieties: Primitivo, Negroamaro and Fiano Pugliese.

Viticulture

Uninterrupted rows of vineyards lie between this unique countryside’s woodlands and pine forests stretching out as far as the eye can see until fading into the Adriatic Sea. Tormaresca has two estates located in the best-known winegrowing regions: Masseria Maime in the Salento area located in the vibrant heart of Apulia and the Tenuta Carrubo estate in the Manduria DOC, a famous area for the production of its Primitivo grape.

Winemaking

Right in the middle of the farm is a large seventeenth century courtyard once used for storing grain and making wine. Outside its historic perimeter walls there is an aristocratic chapel named Saint Pasquale in Maime dating back to the seventeenth century. Our cellars are found in the heart of the estate, “Cantina Tormaresca”, an innovative structure that takes inspiration from the forms of indigenous vegetation, such as the smooth curve. This estate is a perfect combination of innovation and age-old traditions; ancient cultivation methods such as “alberello”, an old Apulian technique used to reduce water consumption to a minimum, exist next to new espalier vineyards, a perfect technical compromise for producing excellent quality wines.
