About the Producer

Masseria San Magno is the product of a project conceived by young people with a belief in the farming culture of their land of origin and of its wine productions, full of flavour and rich in history. This is a place where young hands create and leave tangible signs of their loving passage in every instant of care for the vineyards and transformation of the grapes into wine.

A completely refurbished winery, preserving the original structure and materials, dating back to the 19th century, welcomes and cradles the grapes of varieties native to Apulia, including Nero di Troia and Bombino Bianco, used to make the red, white and rosé wines of Masseria San Magno. MASSERIA SAN MAGNO is situated in the Alta Murgia territory, a land very with a strong vocation for agriculture since time immemorial. The presence of ancient populations is testified by a recently discovered necropolis with tumulus tombs, which testifies the presence of human inhabitants during the VII and the VI centuries B.C.
