The Guarinis are an ancient and noble family who settled in Salento from Normandy in the year 1040. This thousand-year-old family introduces innovation to their historical winery and olive oil production, always aiming at quality and at the valorization of native grape varieties and food products. In 2005 the company started the conversion of the whole production system to organic in an effort to respect the environment, the people working in, it and the final consumers as much as possible.
The family owns estates and "masserie" farmhouses for a total of 700 hectares. Of those, 70 hectares are in vineyards and 260 centenaries olive trees.
The Negroamaro, Primitivo, and Malvasia Nera wines, the extra virgin olive oil, sauces, preserves, and cheese are the result of the hard work and of the bond with the territory which started a thousand years ago.
