Vineyards

Mottura’s vineyards are located in the particular terroir bounded by the towns of Cellino San Marco, Campi Salentina, Salice Salentino and Squinzano.
The soil in these areas has a historic vocation for growing the autochthonous vines of Puglia, rich in iron giving it a characteristic reddish colour. Clayey and limey layers contribute to abundant harvests and wines rich in extracts, concentrates and body.

Most of the vineyards are bush trained or vertical trellis trained; the former have an average age of 60 years per plant, while the latter have an average age of 10-15 years.

Bush-trained vineyards are cultivated on “white soil” with a greater content of tufaceous material which promotes production of full-bodied, concentrated wines with a strong bouquet.

Average production per hectare is 8,000/10,000 kg for trellis trained vineyards, 3,000 to 4,000 kg per hectare for bush trained vines.
The vineyards are managed on the basis of a technical production policy aimed at guaranteeing integrated management, outstanding quality standards and traceability of the entire process.

The grapes are harvested and taken to the wine-making facility in Novoli
