About us

Company details

Today, The Vecchia Torre Wineryis one of the most important cooperatives in the Province of Lecce and stands an example of one of the successful companies in the Apulia.

The company has been growing since it began in 1959: today there are 1.240 members who produce about 12.000 tons of grapes annually from their 1.100 hectares of vineyards. The winery produces more than 2.500.000 bottles per year and exports about the 60% of its production.

The main objective, is the intense respect we have for our culture and traditions and the sincere relationship with our members, who are followed and advised in all phases of the grape development. Due to the huge quantity of grapes harvested, we have to immediately make a careful selection using some advanced wine techniques to establish the right vinification processes needed for the different grape quality.

Among different grapes varieties, the predominant varietals are the local Negroamaro, Primitivo and Malvasia of Lecce; other red grapes are Montepulciano and Syrah. The most important white varietals are Vermentino, Malvasia Bianca, Chardonnay and Trebbiano.

The company mission is simple: to offer a high quality wine at an affordable and honest price thereby establishing a relationship of trust with our customers.

In the past few years several national and international Magazines and Wine Challenges have recognized the great value-for-money of our wines. We are really proud of this recognition.
