THE STORY CONTINUES, SINCE 2013

In 2013 a great process of transformation changes the winery cooperative in Winery SRL, today Vignaioli Pugliesi. Thanks to great structural interventions, today Vignaioli Pugliesi have a modern production plant and a new more efficient and stable structure. From old grape collection centre, is born a modern glass structure used as a gourmet restaurant, and in the lower floor – the ancient wine tanks – the wines rest in wooden barrels.

In 2017, the company invested in commercialization of her first labels, 5 Reali Siti – Mediterraneo – Le Pergole – Bulla Aufidus.

Pointing toward a distinction from wine competitors, the company focused its attention on Nero di Troia wine because, accurate historical research shows that this grape variety have been born exactly in Cinque Reali Siti territory, in Orta Nova, headquarter of company. In these years Vignaioli Pugliesi, with its technical team, has implemented agronomic and oenological practices, for enhance the peculiarities of this grape variety. For this reason, the company applies specific rules about the choice of plots of land, in organic agricultural, that must respect exact morphological features, using a sustainable and innovative production chain.

Idea of making mono-varietal production of Nero di Troia has produced “Matura”: the label of organic Nero di Troia of Vignaioli Pugliesi. The main goal of this process is to bring the attention, by the other companies engaged in environmental sustainability, about these practices for promote the territory not only in Italy but also to foreign country investors that could identified the Cinque Reali Siti like a lab of traditions and quality with respect of environmental, social and economic sustainability.
