Order some of Puglia's best wine to greet you on arrival at your villa

PUGLIAN WINE DELIVERED TO YOUR VILLA

Puglia produces about 17% of Italy's wine and boasts a proud oenological tradition that dates back thousands of years. Thanks to the presence of autochthonous grape varieties, such as Negroamaro and Primitivo, Puglian wines are a truly genuine expression of the region and not to be missed if spending time in the region.

And as we want you to taste some of the best local wines, we have teamed up with leading Puglian producer, TORMARESCA, to offer a unique in-villa wine delivery service for anyone staying in one of our villas. Tormaresca was established in 1988 by Antinori, one of Italy's premier wine-making families, and has quickly become one the pre-eminent producers of Puglian wine.

 

Some of the advantages of our in-villa wine delivery service

  1. On arrival at your villa you will find a few cases of top quality Puglian wine waiting for you. 
  2. There are 12 delicious local wines to choose from, including whites, reds, a rosé and a dessert wine.  
  3. Excellent value - our prices are extremely competitive with those of local wine shops. 
  4. If you order more than €250-worth of wine, delivery is free.  
  5. Ordering is quick and simple - directly on-line through your own personal password-protected page.
  6. You don't have to go on long shopping trips to find a decent wine seller or load and unload heavy cases of wine into your car.

It really is a win-win service!

  2. Choose from the selection of wines on offer (see below).
