Petrera Pasquale Di Orfino Rosa, a Fatalone Winery a Stone’s Throw from the Sea
Petrera Pasquale Di Orfino Rosa is located in the ancient Peucetians, on the Murgian rocky hills to the south of Bari. It sits at a distance of 45 km from the Adriatic Sea to the east and 45 km from the Ionian Sea to the South. The estate is a short drive away from the beautiful Monte Sannace, the Norman castle and the cathedral to the North-East of Gioia del Colle.
Winery Named After a Nickname
The story of Petrera Pasquale Di Orfo Rosa started by Petrera Nicola and dates back to the late 19th century. He chose the Spinomarino Hills of Gaudella for its suitable cultivation and microclimatic conditions to grow Primitivo grapes. The family business passed on to five generations. After the marriage of Filippo Petrera with Rosa Orfino, the Orfino family also joined the wine business. The winery got its name from Filippo’s nickname – Il Fatalone. In 2003, the winery became the house of a new cellar, carved in the rocks, adjacent to the ancient Masseria.
