Azienda Agricola “San Ruggiero” is located where the Greek hero Diomedes is said to have founded the new Troy using the stones left after the war that led to the fall and the destruction of the mythical City; as an eternal reminder of his gestures, Diomedes planted some vines in those same fields. The Winery was built in 2012 according to the principles of bioarchitecture and the respect of surrounding environment; likewise, grape-picking and wine producing follow the ancient traditions. The vineyard was originally planted about 60 years ago, and it has now been inherited by Dr. Ruggiero Tupputi, a radiologist with a passion for high quality vine growing, who has taken up producing this noble indigenous grape variety in a winery that his family have owned since early 1800s. It is a vineyard unirrigated, Guyot trained . Grapes are picked manually, the fermentation is processed in steel vats, in a thermo-conditioned environment.
