Cantina Sampietrana Winery, Inception After World War II

The history of Cantina Sampietrana Winery, located in the Puglia region, dates back to 1952. The Second World War had come to an end, and technical advancements had a significant effect on social and economic aspects of farm life. Through new land reforms, the Government started to redistribute all Italian agricultural land. A majority of the property was transferred to small family farmers and new private companies.

The Ancient Cellar of Cantina Sampietrana

Cantina Sampietrana Winery is located in the middle of San Pietro Vernotico, a small village between Lecce and Brindisi. The town is also famous because of the renowned singer, Domenic Modugno. The winery was established close to the railways by 68 grape-growing members. The train was the only transport system present at that time, and it was easier for the grape growers to load the grapes bunches directly on the train cars.

Cantina Sampietrana Winery still uses concrete winemaking tanks inside the cellar that are entirely vitrified. This feature instantly transports visitors into the past.
