Feudo Croce (formerly Feudo di Santa Croce) is a delightful country estate located in Carosino, near Grottaglie, on the Salento peninsula, Apulia winemaking country at its best.
The Tinazzi family bought it in 2001. Over the years, vineyards were planted and vitally important irrigation equipment was installed, making use of innovative techniques for collecting water.
Traditional Salento grapes are cultivated here. The vine training systems adopted are Guyot and the typical Apulia bush method. Production is concentrated on renowned wines like Primitivo, Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera and Malvasia Bianca.
The jewel in the crown is the Primitivo di Manduria LXXIV, named one the 100 best wines in the world by the prestigious US trade magazine, Wine Spectator, two years in a row (2014 and 2015).
Visitors to the estate can see the vineyard and the wine barrel storage room, taste the cellar's wines and enjoy the fascinating educational museum.
