Cantine San Marzano was born in 1962, in a small town in Puglia in the center of the DOC Primitivo di Manduria, a strip of land kissed by the two seas of Salento, the Ionian and the Adriatic. 19 wine growers from San Marzano, whose families had cultivated the land for generations, joined forces to found the winery. Over the decades this cooperative has grown significantly, attracting over 1,200 winemakers. Using modern and technologically advanced winemaking techniques they produce elegant wines that pay homage to the ancient Apulian wine traditions. The fusion of tradition, passion and contemporary techniques has allowed this company to produce wines with distinctive varietal and regional characteristics, while reflecting the local territory. In the Sommelier Wine Awards, San Marzano was awarded as European producer of the year 2017.
