The Antico Palmento is a family-run company located in the center of Manduria. Born from the passion of Bruno Garofano who, after forty years of collaboration and oenological consultancy for various Apulian wineries, decides to put his experience at the disposal of his children and starts a wine business in the heart of one of the most suitable areas of Puglia. Bruno's dream, always supported and encouraged by his wife Lina, took shape in 1998 with the acquisition of some hectares of vineyard and a "millstone" dating back to the early years of the last century. The entire production chain takes place in the structure returned to industriousness through careful conservative restructuring. Some underground cisterns have been vitrified and returned to vinification; others, put in communication with each other, are reserved for refining and packaging the wine. Finally, a space is dedicated to hospitality with the organization of cultural events, courses for wine lovers and wine tasting and typical products. The philosophy of production both in the vineyard and in the cellar is always the same: no shortcuts, very few targeted interventions. The intent is to produce wines in limited quantities that are interpreters of the best expression of the territory. The focus is on the main grape of this area: the Primitivo. The wines produced: "Acini Spargoli", "La dolce Vite" and "Rose del Sud". The art of making wine is to accompany a natural process in its becoming, remaining faithful to the old traditions but always aimed at the application of innovative techniques. Thus essential and authentic wines can be born stripped of the superfluous and capable of seducing and going straight to the heart.
