Welcome in Salento! Wine tasting at Feudi di Guagnano
Here is what you will live
When I was a kid I wanted to be a journalist and not wine. Our fathers used to make wine here in Salento. A good wine, what today is called a "garagisti" wine, made in the family's millstone and sold locally: a zero kilometer product. We children were told that we had to work the land, already as children, so that we could understand how many poorly paid sacrifices and how much hard work it took to get by with the vineyard. And that it was necessary to study for a "profession", for a more dignified and profitable job than theirs, otherwise our future would have been in the middle of the "earth". Other times, escape times from the vineyard! But when it would have been simple and natural, for all that we had been taught since we were children, to abandon, sell or eradicate the vines we inherited, that's how it all took a different turn.
It was decided all together, me, Carlo and Franco, this time for an act of love and not of constraint, to found the farm Feudi di Guagnano in July 2002 with the clear intention of saving both the vineyards from abandonment. of family, that of those, for age or necessity, could no longer cultivate them. Since then many harvests have passed, but when you come to visit us you will feel all the pleasure and beauty of tasting authentic wines. If we are lucky enough to meet, I'll tell you how it ended with the profession of journalist.
With this tasting, lasting an average of 90 minutes, we will start with the arrival in the winery, followed by a sustained presentation of the company. There will be also an introduction to the techniques of winemaking, refining and bottling of the wines we produce, to immerse yourself in the wine field and immediately savour our production.
The highlight will be the tasting of the wines from the winery ( at least 3 different types) paired with Salentine typical food, to bring you with your head to our land, mother of the Feudi di Guagnano vineyards.
