CANTINE SAN MARZANO
In 1962, 19 vinegrowers from SanMarzano, whose familieshad farmed the land for generations, combined their efforts to establish “Cantine San Marzano”.
Through the decades this co-operative has grown significantly, attracting over 1200 vine growers, using modern and technologically advanced plants and producing elegant wines without forgetting their obligation to the very old Apulian wine tradition.
Primitivo di Manduria
Cantine San Marzano lies in Apulia, in the heart of the acclaimed d.o.p. “Primitivo di Manduria” area, a strip of land between two seas, the Ionian and the Adriatic; countries and landscapes in the province of Taranto and Brindisi where vines and olive trees flourish side by side on a red soil surface.
The vineyard’s soils and Mediterranean terroir play a fundamental role in the production of high quality wines. The region's climate is extreme with drought, frost and the Sirocco winds. But the passionate winemakers ensure even the fruits of the oldest bush vines become full-bodied and elegant wines, capable of considerable ageing.
San Marzano produce wines that can enrich the tasting experience beyond the most ambitious expectations and we are delighted to present them at The Swan Inn, Monks Eleigh
