A place of "eternal spring": this is how the Roman poet Horace described the region of Apulia some 2,000 years ago. One can confidently assume that Apulia's wine was included in this general picture, because it is well known how much the Romans valued wines from the region around Tarentum (today Taranto, German Tarent).
3,000 years of wine history in Apulia
The Romans benefited from the long winegrowing tradition in Apulia - the Phoenicians had already started to plant vines here 1,000 years earlier, later followed by the Greeks. Thus, with 3,000 years of wine history in Apulia, it is one of the oldest growing areas in the world.
