For five centuries the Counts Zecca have lived in the lands of Leverano, in the heart of Salento. The land has always been listened to, understood and put to good use, until it completed, in the early 1900s, the production cycle from the cultivation to the vinification of the grapes of its own possessions, without ever altering the subtle balance of the place.
Conti Zecca's commitment to enhancing the genius loci has led the company to expand over time. Today Conti Zecca has four family estates, in addition to the original offer, for a total of 320 hectares that stretch between Leverano and Salice Salentino. All make autochthony their reason for being.
