Cantine San Giorgio
Cantine San Giorgio is located in the Puglia wine region of Italy. It was initially a wine cooperative established in 1962 and was acquired by Gian Andrea, the owner of Tinazzi winery, in 2012. It is now the most significant estate in southern Puglia and is mainly managed by grandson Giorgio. St. George's uses good quality cement fermenters, the thickness, and texture of which helps keep the temperature of the wines in them constant, which has become popular again in recent years. In 2020, a new production winery will be inaugurated in Faggiano (TA), the flagship of modernity and automation, maintaining the quality and tradition of Apulian wines. With the advent of new wineries, ancient tombs have been discovered within the winery's confines, which further links it to the practice and antiquity of the region.

The Puglia region, located in the east of Italy, has a very long winemaking history and a unique local grape variety. Puglia is the second-largest wine producer in Italy, after Veneto. Puglia has always been considered one of Italy's most important wine regions.
Puglia has a Mediterranean climate, the soil is rich in calcium, and the topsoil is rich in iron, which is very suitable for grape growing. With year-round sunshine and a dry climate, Puglia is the place to be if you're looking for a red wine with ripe fruit and rich aromas.
Most Puglia red wines are ripe, full-bodied, and pair well with spiced meats. Puglia's wine producers all have one thing in common; they focus on producing indigenous grape varieties, such as Negroamaro, Primitivo, and Bombino Nero.
