To introduce every family to Salentine Peninsula through tasting one of its traditional foods, Vincotto Salentino, updated to meet consumers’ tastes and needs.

We are located in Salento, Puglia, a land kissed by the sun and caressed by the Adriatic and Ionic Sea, which gives this Salentine peninsula a particularly temperate and ventilated microclimate.
Over the past years the company made enormous steps forward towards modernization, and expanding its facilities and production capacity in response to the demand of local and global markets. This demand is met with its innovative Vincotto PrimitivO range of products.
