ANNO DI FONDAZIONE
Located in San Pietro di Vernotico (Brindisi), Cantine Santa Barbara can be considered more as an
open and multifunctional space than as a traditional wine plant. Here the production follows the
traditional and delicious style of Salento.
The oenologist Pietro Giorgiani is the president of Cantine Santa Barbara, but also a point of
reference for the wine sector in Puglia.
A careful work in vineyards and cellars, a deep wine heritage, are part of a big treasure called
tradition, having in Pugliaa millennium old history. Pietro Giorgiani was successful in giving it to
his daughters Maria Rosaria and Marcella, who are creating a link between past and future.
Giorgiani’s family has the ownership of 70 hectares and in the vineyards may be found grapes of
indigenous varieties from Salento such as Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera and Susumaniello, Aleatico
and Primitivo, but also international one such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon.
