Gregory Perucci is pioneering in every way. He was the first to champion the Primitivo grape in the Puglia region, previously only used to produce cheap bulk wine, and the first to commit serious effort to studying the many facets of the area’s different soils. Gregory has since made a name for himself internationally for his research organization Accademia dei Racemi. They focus only on old native grapes, mostly unknown and underrated on the market. The most important results were achieved on the Malvasia Nera, and, recently, Verdeca and Vermentino. The estate is proud to have a new event space in Manduria—“Spacio Primitivo”—at which to host tastings and grander events.
