History of Due Palme
One of the largest cooperative wine producers in the Salento region of Puglia, Cantina Due Palme, has over 2400 hectares of total vineyard holdings disseminated across the region's foremost appellations. This winery offers a comprehensive lineup of classic Puglian wines that are considered to be some of the best in the Salento peninsula of Puglia, where the grapes benefit from the arid, rocky soils and warm winds from the Ionian and Adriatic Seas.
Founded in 1989 Cantine Due Palme has grown over the years with up to 400 growers, carefully selected on the grounds of their owning old vines situated in premium sites, is recognized today as one of the finest large-scaled cellars operating in the region.
Angelo Maci, the President of the Cantina, is a graduated agronomist at its third generation of winemakers and supervises the vineyard management at all stages throughout the growing season, up until harvest time, following closely each grower and monitoring the ripening of the grapes through weekly inspections.
In the last twenty years, Cantine Due Palme has incorporated several significant wineries: Cantina Sociale Riforma Fondiaria in Cellino San Marco, one of the oldest Puglia cooperatives, founded in 1955; Cantina Sociale "Angelini" in San Pietro Vernotico, founded in 1961 and finally Cantina Sociale "San Gaetano" in Lizzano, founded in 1959, a great producer of Primitivo DOP Manduria.
Cantina Due Palme wines are made from old vineyards (30 to 50 years old), with a vine density up to 5.000 plants per hectare. In its 2.400 hectares located in the heart of Salento, Cantine Due Palme produces native grapes as Negroamaro, Primitivo, Malvasia Nera, Susumaniello, Aleatico, Fiano and Moscato; other non-native grapes are also produced, as Sangiovese, Falanghina, Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, red and white Pinot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon.
Today Cantine Due Palme heads a portfolio of 25 labels, considered as the best wines in the Salento peninsula of Puglia, where the grapes benefit from the arid, rocky soils and warm winds from the Ionian and Adriatic Seas. The result is small knotted bunches of highly concentrated grapes with dense spicy flavour.
Six DOP are produced according to the regulations: Salice Salentino, Manduria, Brindisi, Squinzano and Lizzano.
