Über das Weingut und die Weine
Feudi di Guagnano was born with the aim of saving a few hectares of vineyards cultivated with Negroamaro and Primitivo abandoned by vintners who were elderly and no longer able to cultivate them. This is why producing wines for the winery was above all an act of love towards a territory, the North Salento, historically among the most important in Italy when it comes to wine. The name “Feudi di Guagnano” derives from the word “fiéu” (in Latin feudus) which in the Salento dialect means rural district, portion of extra-urban land: in fact, their vineyards, smaller than a hectare, dwell in different districts of the Guagnano area. The company brand, interpreted in a modern key, represents a perfect synthesis of the history and traditions of this important area in the center of the Salento peninsula. In fact, it shows a detail of the most significant image of local historiography: the Basilian fresco “Madonna with Child”. A popular legend traces the foundation of the first nucleus of houses in the town of Guagnano around it.
Feudi di Guagnano's wines are obtained exclusively from native vines: Negroamaro, Primitivo, Malvasia Nera from Lecce and Verdeca. A special selection of Chardonnay is aged in French oak barrels for 6 months. This philosophy stems from the desire to enhance the area and produce wines that are an expression of the history and the winemaking tradition of their land. The extreme care in cultivation and vinification processes together with a strictly manual harvest, qualify the varied offer of wines from Feudi di Guagnano.
