wines according to vetrère

The cult of the earth and the loving care we give to our grapes give Vetrère wines all the colors of Bacchus: noble reds, sweet whites and fine rosés. Our labels are the result of the cultivation of autochthonous grape varieties: Negroamaro, Primitivo and Malvasia for reds; Minutolo and Chardonnay for whites. In full respect of nature, we achieve “the wine according to Vetrère”, a happy synthesis between the authentic identity of a territory, its history and the universal passion for the nectar of Bacchus.

Here is everything we have that is most precious: our labels.

With its intense color and complete taste, Passaturo is one of the most loved wines of the winery.

HISTORY

The first certain news of the estate date back to 1600, when in Salento flourished the Baroque style, of which are preserved architectural testimonies of great value.

An ancient map of the 1700s testifies that Vetrère Winery belonged to the Troilo family. In 1903, Serafina Troilo married Michele Ammazzalorsa, who left his properties to his nephew Enrico Bruni, father of the current owners. Today the company is run by Annamaria and Francesca.

PHILOSOPHY

A winery, today more than ever, is a representative and ambassador of the territory. Its philosophy is part of a wider ecosystem made of environment, quality, culture.

Vetrère has chosen the path of clean energy and is able to meet its energy needs in complete autonomy. Electricity is produced by solar panels covering the cellar and offices, and by the generosity of the Apulian sun. A biomass boiler generates the heat the estate needs: grape seeds are dried naturally in the summer to be the natural fuel in the winter.

THE WINE CELLAR

Our wines find their home in a facility dated back to the beginning of the 1800s. The building is entirely made of tuff, a calcareous stone typical of Salento. Its star vaults and the characteristics of tuff itself allow the cellar to maintain a thermal insulation and a constant temperature, ideal conditions to preserve the organoleptic properties of wine, during refinement and storage.

Different rooms of the cellar are dedicated to the processing. A room on the ground floor is entirely dedicated to French oak barrels, in which are aged for 12 months the top red wines of our production, two prestigious labels such as Barone Pazzo and Lago della Pergola.
The ancient underground tanks, from which the tuff was used to build the building, are the habitat where the wine is stored during summer months.
