My good friend Mario gave me a tip that I’ll be grateful for till the end of my days. He recommended a place where time seems to have stopped and where the wine tastes better than anywhere else. ‘Such a unique experience, to spend the night in an old town and wake up to the sight of olive trees and vineyards. You'll find yourself in touch with a lush and vibrant piece of nature while tasting typical local products over breakfast. You'll love it there, Eliza!´ Naturally, I couldn’t help but go and see for myself right away!
As I arrived at Il Palmento, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I saw cute little towers wherever I looked. The owner Marcello told me that the towers are called ‘trulli’ and they are typical of the Puglia region. When I asked about their wine, a smile appeared on his face and he told me all about it. Il Palmento owes its name to a centuries-old method of pressing grapes. You'll see and taste this wine tradition everywhere. He proudly poured me a glass.
This is truly the house of wine. Salute!
