Description: The Taurino family has been growing grapes and making wines in Puglia for seven generations, but it was Francesco Taurino who started the family business after World War II to supply Italy and Europe with authentic Apulian wines. Later, his son Cosimo grew the distribution and brought the production to world-class levels with the collaboration of Severino Garofano, a renown Apulian enologist. Today, the estate encompasses 80 hectares of vineyards planted almost exclusively to Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera grapes – both indigenous to the area of Salento where they are grown.
