The Bocca di Lupo estate is located in the countryside of Minervino Murge in Apulia, the DOC region of Castel del Monte, an area well known for the beauty of its wild, untamed landscape and for its devotion to the sport of hunting. The winery is gracefully set within the estate’s 140 hectares of vineyards; its fortified stone structure and bright white walls made of tough ricks were built upholding ancient building traditions typical of manor farms in the Murgia area. Historic country manors, dry stonewalls and endless rocky hillside trails, are the only traces of man’s presence in a countryside that refuses to be defeated by urban development.
The vines grow at about 300 meters above sea level in The Murgia, an area with challenging climatic conditions that throughout time have always forced its inhabitants to work with great devotion. Harsh winters, temperatures that fluctuate dramatically, deep ravines, thick fog often covering the vineyards and especially its proximity to the ancient volcano Vulture are only some of the characteristics of this territory that rewards patient hard work with precious harvests.
