In the very Southern part of the heel of the "Italian boot", which is really the Salento Peninsula of the Puglia region, the Perrini family have been making wine for generations. For many year,s most of the grapes were sold to local négociants, as the means and finances to estate-bottle were not available to many of the local contadinos.


This visit to Perrini Organic took place in November, 2013.
