Malvasia wine I.G.P. Apulia

It connects two strips of land of the Mediterranean: Puglia and the Peloponnese. Here, in the ancient Byzantine stronghold of Monembasia, this wine was produced and then started spreading all over of Europe, inspiring the name of typical Veneto taverns, called “Malvase”. With the Apulian sun, this vine finds its best expressions. The name recalls the archaeological site of Monte Sannace, where Greek colonizers chose to start cultivating this vine in the territory.
