The name “Ognissole”, of Greek origin, is mentioned in a poem of Leonida di Taranto (third Century B.C.) that describes this land as full of charm and covered by the sun for most of the day. Ognissole embodies the essence of Puglia where the sun and the influence of the sea give richness, character and elegance to the grapes. The logo is a detailed re-interpretation of a mosaic found in a “domus” built between the end of the third century and the beginning of the second century B.C., now stored in the National Archeological Museum of Taranto.
Ognissole is the result of a dream: create a single entrepreneurial project encompassing the richness of the whole Puglia region and its native varietals. To capture such potential, Ognissole is structured in two independent estates, each one with its vineyards and its winery:
•in the Manduria Estate, Primitivo and Negroamaro dominate the scene;
•in the Castel Monte area, the Cefalicchio Estate, byodamic with Demeter certification since 1992, focuses mostly on Nero di Troia and Moscato.

VINEYARDS AND WINERY – TENUTA OGNISSOLE
The vineyards, located in Fragagnano (TA) in the heart of production area of Primitivo di Manduria Doc, are cultivated both with espalier (Guyot) and sapling (Alberello) for the oldest vines of Primitivo di Manduria (60-70 years old). They are in an area formerly covered by the waters of the Ionian Sea (you can still find fossils among the vines). The soil, red in colour, is chalky and sometimes clayish. Main varieties grown are:
Primitivo (about 35 ha) Chardonnay (about 10 ha) Verdeca (about 2 ha) Negroamaro (about 3 ha)
The entire production (vinification and bottling) is made in a small and recently built winery in Sava (TA), only 3 km far from the vineyards.
