About the winery:
Masseria Cuturi is a unique 270ha property in Manduria, Puglia. The Rossi-Chauvenet family have worked tirelessly on this project of farming and producing wines from organic grapes, focusing on the unique qualities of the native varietals of Manduria. The Rossi-Chauvenet family take care of the nearly 140ha’s of Primitivo, Negramaro and Fiano vines planted. In addition the family continues to defend five-hundred-year-old olive trees, act as caretakers for woodlands and ancient archaeological sites that date from around 300 BCE, and preserve farm structures that were built between the late 1700s and the first years of the 1800s.
