Cantine San Marzano wine producer

Cantine San Marzano
In 1962 nineteen vine-growers based around the small town of San Marzano di San Giuseppe pooled their resources and founded a co-operative, Cantine San Marzano, to make and market the wine from their family vineyards.
 
Over the decades that followed their enterprise went from strength to strength, until today more than 1200 growers are members of what is now one of the biggest producers in the region.
 
San Marzano di San Giuseppe lies just on the western side of the Salento peninsula’s backbone, in the province of Taranto.  It is part of the Primitivo di Manduria DOC, regarded as the best zone for this variety.  However, the co-op’s vineyards now stretch far to the east into Brindisi province and into the Salice Salentino DOC.
 
They produce several wines from each of those DOCs, although most of their output is sold as IGP Salento. There are whites, rosés and a fizz, but most of the production is red and based on Salento’s signature varieties, Primitivo and Negroamaro.
