Food & wine tasting in Salento at Duca Carlo Guarini
Here is what you will live
The family Guarini has been living in Puglia since 1040, their family arrived from Normandy in Terra d’Otranto centuries ago. They have a lot to tell, so many stories handed down, many historical figures who have been connected to the family, in the past they even hosted kings and saints, but the story that they like telling the most is the one that binds them to the earth: they have been cultivating it for almost thousand years, seeing themselves as farmers and thus, guardians of the Apulian agricultural heritage. The wines, oils, cereals, legumes and preserves thet produce reflect the character of the territory and tell of sun, sea, land, passion, history, elegance, culture and hospitality.
Accardo Guarini, Count of Valesio, in 1114 cultivated his vineyard in the Pìutri estate, overlooking the Adriatic sea between Lecce and Brindisi. Since then and for a lucky fate, we, the Guarini family continue to take care of those vineyards that are still rooted in the same wonderful Salento, respecting the traditions, without sacrificing innovation.
They own 700 hectares of property , farms and masserie in Salento, 70 of which are vineyards in the estate of Torchiarolo , 260 olive groves in the estate of Scorrano. In many of these lands they cultivate vegetables, ancient grains and new rediscoveries such as fiber and seed hemp.
