The Mottura Winery was founded in 1927 in Tuglie, in the province of Lecce – an area of excellence in wine production in the region of Puglia. Today, the winery is operated by the fourth generation of the Mottura family, and is recognized as one of the most interesting and dynamic wineries in the Salento area.
Mottura leads the way in production of great red wines from Negroamaro and Primitivo grapes: unique varietals that grow only on the Salento Peninsula, where they have been cultivated for more than a thousand years. Mottura’s vineyards are located in the particular terroir bounded by the towns of Cellino San Marco, Campi Salentina, Salice Salentino and Squinzano. The soil in these areas is historically known for growing the indigenous varietals of Puglia. Iron, clay and limestone found in the soil contribute to the abundant harvests that produce extracted, rich wines that are full in body. Each vineyard is cultivated with the goal of optimizing the quality.
