The origins of Santa Lucia date back to 1628 when “Marc’Antonio Perrone earned 60 annual ducats of feudal revenue above the town of Quarati.” Quarati is the modern day Corato, where on the Santa Lucia holding at about 300 m. above sea level, entirely organically farmed, one finds the selected clones of local vines from the Murgia area: Nero di Troia for red wines, Bombino Nero for Rosè, and Fiano for white wine.

Murgia is located in the foothills of Castel del Monte, the famous octagonal Norman domain commissioned by the Swabian Emperor Federico II, and its soil is mainly calcareous.
Our vineyard’s philosophy centres in obtaining top quality grapes, grown using organic agriculture, without buying neither grapes nor wines. The winemaking phase uses these top quality grapes otherwise not available through wholesalers, as our grapes combine an optimal alcoholic and polyphenolic ripening, with freshness and acidity.

The vines grow with the single guyot method, with a density of 5,500 plants per hectare. The average yield is between 6,000 and 9,000 kg per hectare; every vine produces no more than 1,7 kg of grapes, with a high ratio between leaf surface and yield. Since the 2016 harvest, all our wines have the EU organic certification logo on its back label, and the production is limited to 60,000 bottles of wine and 5,000 of extra virgin olive oil per year.

Organic farming practices have been in place since 2009, with the official conversion phase started on 2013. Beginning with the 2016 harvest, all our wines are certified as organic.
The blue print for the Estate’s “casino”, or mansion in local slang, was originally drawn up in 1822, and is now on display in the main room of the mansion. It served as a hospital, a deposit of farm instruments, as well as a shelter for animals. The oldest blueprint for the vineyard dates back to 1849, and it now hangs in the company offices for all to see. The mansion was built using local Trani stone with internal vaulted arches in the Southern wing; the perimeter walls there were so thick that a room has been actually excavated inside. The roof tiles and vaulted ceilings guarantee cool temperatures even in the sweltering summer heat. Its cellars were excavated underground to ensure the correct temperature and humidity for the conservation of the wines in oak barrels.
