Salento is a peninsula between two seas: A favorable geographic position, a mild climate all year long, abundant underground water and extremely fertile soil (such as the rich red soil) gift all local produce with a unique taste and distinguished nutritional properties.
Inhabited and colonized by the Greeks under the name of Messapia and known today as “the Heel of the Boot”, Salento is a touristic destination of excellence and the land of our family, deeply rooted in Casamassella, a small village near Otranto.
Vigne Vecchie (“the old vineyard” in Italian) is the name of our family owned company. Artisan agriculture has been our business for generations.
Our venue is a historic building, surrounded by a beautifully manicured garden, kissed by the warm Mediterranean sun and only a few blocks from the uncontaminated coastline.
It all started and still takes life from that place, from that building, from the land that the Stefano family has managed for almost five decades.
