Tenute Rubino

The Rubino vineyards are located along an area of 200 hectares along the Adriatic shore. The grapes are Negroamaro, Primitivo, Malvasia Nera, Susumaniello, Montepulciano, Malvasia Bianca, Chardonnay and Vermentino. The soil is calcareous, with a great presence of sand that ensures a good water balance. These features, along with the closeness of the sea, very good ventilation and a mild climate, favor the perfect ripening of the grapes. This family’s dream came true in 1999. After acquiring the estates, Tommaso, with the great courage that came from passion for his job, decided to plant vineyards following quality strategies that 10 years ago were absolutely innovative in Southern Italy. He planted new varieties of grapes and substituted old systems with modern ones. At all stages, from the wine-making to the bottling, the Rubinos use innovative techniques. The whole winery is furnished with new enological machines, steel tanks and 300 barriques made of French wood.
