Gioia del Colle DOC

The Gioia del Colle wine zone is located on top of the Murgia plateau, at an altitude of approximately 320 meters, in a large area south of Bari, partially covering what might be called the ankle of Italy’s heel.

The name Gioia del Colle can be translated as “jewels (or pleasure) of the hill”, which perhaps derives from the joys of wine, as the warm and dry climate provides alcohol-rich wines.

Gioia del Colle DOC is considered to be the home of the Primitivo grape and perhaps that is why the wines produced from this grape attract a lot of attention while delivering the highest quality of the zone. Nevertheless, there is still a long way up to the competition, namely the Primitivo wines from Manduria DOC
