 Vineyards are farmed organically and biodynamically and each varietal is treated differently to ensure the ideal growing conditions. With this careful management, Fiano - an ancient grape dating back to the Roman Empire - with naturally low yields and great acidity, shows ripe tropical fruit and rich texture balanced by nervy minerality.

Puglia is a much-maligned region. This is the third-largest wine producing area in Italy after Veneto and Emilia-Romagna, and still mostly large co-ops.

The Perrone Capano family has owned Azienda Santa Lucia since 1628, with vineyard records dating back to 1849. They sit a mere 15km from the coast at 300m in elevation.

The family has grown authocthonous varieties through its whole existence. All of their wines are single-vineyard bottlings from estate vineyards of Nero di Troia, Fiano, Bombino Nero, and Aleatico (for an exciting sweet wine).
