Until relatively recently very few people knew that Puglia produces more wine than any other region in Italy mainly due to the fact that most of the region's grapes are exported for blending with other wines. Now however fewer grapes are exported as wine growers realize their crops' potential to produce finer wines. Yields are down, quality is up, and the results are slowly putting Puglia wine on the map. Today, the annual production of Puglia wine is more than 12 million hectolitres. The local grapes are Negroamaro, Primitivo (Zinfandel), Malvasia Nera, Uva di Troia and Aleatico.
