Tenuta Viglione is a family owned winery established in 1937. Giovanni Zullo, the current owner, is the third generation, and his children Raffaele and Antonisia the fourth. They bring on the vines growing and winemaking traditions of the Zullo's. Most of the family works in the winery, which employs also other workers. The company grows 157 hectares of vineyards at an average altitude of 450 m. in the DOC Gioia del Colle in Puglia, Southern Italy. The vineyards are mainly of Primitivo grapes, but there are also other local grapes: Negroamaro, Nero di Troia, Aleatico, Susumaniello, Falanghina, Fiano minutolo, and Verdeca. Most of the production is certified organic since 2005.
The winery is endowed with advanced press and cooled stainless steel tanks, autoclaves, a complete bottling and packing line, and oak barrels for aging reserve wines.
The wines are awarded every year by different international guides and contests (e.g. Decanter, Gambero Rosso), but our best reward is the smile of the people who drinks them.
The total production is about 1 million bottles per year. The wines are already sold in 20 Countries worldwide, but the winery is constantly looking for new opportunities.
