Visits to Masseria di Carvinea are suspended because a wine tasting can’t be conditioned by masks and social distances that, although necessary, don’t favour conviviality!
Instant Classic- because excellent wines don’t only come from tradition.
Carvinea is a young, small reality founded in the early 2000s. From the very beginning Carvinea has produced important wines, which have been consistently awarded with relevant recognitions.
Puglia boasts an ancient tradition in vine-growing and wine-making. The land of Carovigno, where Carvinea’s vineyards are located, benefits from the ionic and briny actions of two seas enclosing the Salento area; the Adriatic and the Jonian Seas. The extremely meticulous work carried out in the vineyards, delivers grapes that are perfect in every aspect. When the ripening occurs under such care and conditions, the resulting wines can only have outstanding qualities.
Our line of wines offers an exquisite taste experience. It represents the new Puglia of Salento, enhanced by the passion of Beppe di Maria and the scientific knowledge of the winemaker Riccardo Cotarella .
