THE AGRICULTURAL COMPANY IS BORN

Raffaele and his wife Antonia decide to leave their land in Basilicata and move to Puglia. Here, driven by the desire to work on more fertile land where they can work vegetables and vineyards, in the countryside of Cerignola they buy the farm and Masseria Contessa Staffa, a noble building dating back to 1700. Antica Enotria was born.

THE CONVERSION TO THE ORGANIC AND THE FIRST HARVEST

Having come to know about the organic farming method, Raffaele decides to take this path. The entire company is converted. Despite the risky choice, the conviction of creating a sustainable company comes to life in the heart of the Di Tuccio family. In the same year the first harvest: a small artisan production of Montepulciano and Aglianico and Sangiovese.

THE CELLAR AND AUTOCHTON VINEYARDS

The cellar is starting to gain importance. A first enlargement takes place with the restructuring of the Masseria premises, previously used as stables and housing for workers. This is how the premises used for the production and refining of wine are born. At the same time, the desire to plant native vines takes shape. In 2001 the Black of Troy and the Falanghina were implanted.

THE FIRST HANDMADE PRESERVES

Not just wine. In this year the first production of artisan preserves with natural cherry tomatoes and oil-grilled artichokes takes place. The goal is to create zero-km products by harvesting from the fields and storing tomatoes and vegetables over a 24-hour period. In a few years, important stages followed: in 2004 the first vintage of Nero di Troia, while in 2006 a new member joined the Di Tuccio family. Raffaele is born, Luigi's son, to whom the Ten October is dedicated. 2010 marks the first vintage of Primitivo and Negroamaro.

THE ENLARGEMENT OF THE COMPANY

The preserves are confirmed thanks to the authentic taste. In 2011 it was decided to build a production plant. 2015 marks an important date for the winery with the first vintage of Fiano. The production of the agrobiological company becomes more and more substantial. Wine and preserves are the core business of Antica Enotria and in 2018 the canning production area was expanded with the installation of technological plants for pasteurization and cooking.

FAMILY PHILOSOPHY

For us, organic farming is a life choice, not a simple cultivation method. Wine is the result of a process that tells the link between man and land. The preserves must reflect the true taste of the raw materials, eco because every product is processed following the natural seasonality of the fruit.
