our vineyards

A quality sought
with love and bred
with rigor

Producing quality wines is for us the best way to show love for our land and for our work, enhancing the gifts of a generous nature through targeted choices.

The 35 hectares of vineyards owned are divided between the farms of Fattoria Cavalli (about 8 ha) and Masseria Celentano (about 27 ha), both located near the ancient city of Lucera.

The type of vine trading, Guyot, is set according to a strict production rules that combines the high density of vines per hectare with the very low yield of grapes per plant.

Raccolta Uva

The strictly manual harvest for the wines of Alberto Longo line, and mechanical for the Masseria Celentano line, yields an average of about 80/90 quintals of grapes on each hectare of vineyard. The unmistakable terroir of our wines is positively influenced by the typical microclimate of the territory. The Balkan winds that hit the growing area determine an excellent temperature shifts between day and night. This allows the grapes to reach physiological ripeness, maintaining the right balance between sugar content and acid content, and a remarkable phenolic extractability. The result is a wine of structure, but always fresh, fruity, elegant and pleasant.

The Cavalli Farm

The Fattoria Cavalli, with its eight hectares of vineyards, is located in the territory of the DOP Cacc’e Mmitte di Lucera. Here native vines such as Montepulciano, Bombino Bianco, Nero di Troia and Falanghina have found their ideal habitat.

Inside the Farm – a nineteenth-century farm completely renovated – there are also the cellar and production facilities, where it is possible to organize visits and wine tastings.

The Masseria Celentano

The 27 hectares of vineyards next to Masseria Celentano are home to both native vines of Negroamaro, Primitivo and Falanghina, and a few hectars of international vines. From these vineyards we obtain the grapes for our IGT Puglia wines.

In addition to being home to the Longo family, the ancient seventeenth-century Masseria is the place intended to welcome all those who wish to visit the winery and the farm, get to know the beautiful territory of Lucera, the white cliffs that descend into the clear sea of the Gargano promontory and taste the traditional cuisine of the Daunia land.
