The cellar

The passion between our family and wine burst in the first decade of the past century. Our grandparents, in fact, understood for first the potentialities which a land as our could express, setting up one of the first companies for the wine from cask commerce. Toward the end of the 60’s of the past century, our father Giovanni Soloperto made a step forwards and, before the DOC law, he put in bottle pure Primitivo, in the first, little cellar.

With the passing of time the cellar has grown up to reach its current dimensions and today in our company, we produce about two millions of bottles every year.

Primitivo of Manduria is always our main resource, placed side by side at wines of the Apulian tradition such as Negroamaro and some white-berry vines of Murges hill, which are part of the DOC of Martina Franca and Locorotondo.

Our work, in fact, is focused on the promotion of the Apulian autochthonous vines, a land rich of varieties and history.

At the same time, we pay attention to customer’s needs offering to them both simples wines and ready to drink, and more complex and structured wines, which tolerate ageing very well. Each bottle of Soloperto’s company is always a product of high quality, that spread in the world the aim of a terroir unique: Apulia.
