Alberto Longo

The winery is located in Lucera, on a nineteenth-century farm, that Alberto Longo chose as the headquarters of his company and thus renovated it intending to produce quality wines and offer a suitable and professional welcome.

Some manuscripts kept in the farm show that the ancient cellar of the Cavalli family from Lucera was located here and it operated from 1906 until the mid-1960s. In the rooms once used as grain tanks, today there are highly technological systems able to control and manage every stage of production, from winemaking to bottling. In the evocative barrel cellar, controlled light, temperature and humidity ensure the optimal conditions for wine ageing.

On the outside, the enchanting view of the castle of Lucera and the rows of Falanghina, Montepulciano, Bombino Bianco and Nero di Troia vine varieties tell the story of these extraordinary and valuable territories. A 13th-century oak, listed among the centuries-old trees by the WWF, dominates the winery and the vineyard with its majestic foliage.

The winery boasts an area of 35 hectares of vineyards, divided between the Cavalli farm and Masseria Celentano, both near Lucera. The cordon-trained vines, the low yield per hectare and the manual harvest reveal the choice of quality of this company. In Lucera some native vine varieties find their perfect habitat, such as Montepulciano, Bombino Bianco and Nero di Troia, together with Falanghina. Along the road that leads to Masseria Celentano, you can recognize the enchanting rows of different vines: Negroamaro, Merlot, Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Montepulciano.
