Varvaglione 1921 aims for excellence, taking the best of the land and transforming it into quality wines. The diversity of native grape varieties is the starting point; knowing how to make the right choice at the right moment is the merit of the experienced winemaker.
Varvaglione 1921’s philosophy pivots on the combination of tradition and technology.
In the Salento region of Puglia, Cosimo and Maria Teresa Varvaglione along with their three children have given new life to a winery with four generations of experience and tradition, and the support of dynamic, motivated collaborators.
