Project Description

Felline

A protagonist and pioneer in the story of Primitivo and native Puglian grape varieties

Azienda Agricola Felline is finally receiving the attention and accolades it deserves. Back-to-back Tre Bicchieri wins from Gambero Rosso for different Cru wines (Giravolta Primitivo di Manduria and Sinfarosa Zinfandel), coupled with the discovery and promotion of ancient native varietals, Felline is not just a Puglian producer, but a Puglian protagonist.

In recent times, Puglia has emerged as an important wine producing region in Italy, however, it is not widely known that much of this can be attributed to Gregory Perrucci. Not only is Gregory one of the genuine pioneers of Primitivo, a story told through his three Crus (Sinfarosa Zinfandel, Giravolta Primitivo di Manduria and Dunico Primitivo di Manduria), made from vineyards with three different soil types. Gregory is also a promoter of Puglia having researched, discovered and produced old, indigenous varietals such as Susumaniello.

The majority of the Felline vineyards sit in the heart of the historic Manduria region in Puglia, however, during the 1990s, Gregory also conceived “Racemi”, a company which joins small farms under the Felline umbrella, to promote different zones and varietals whilst also ensuring the survival of smaller growers and their vineyards, many of whom, without Gregory’s help and determination, wouldn’t be able to survive.
