are based in
. The town sits on a ridge of high ground overlooking the Tavoliere delle Puglie, a vast and fertile plain known as the granary of Italy: almost 20% of Italy’s pasta comes from durum wheat grown here. The yellow wheatfields are interspersed with green olive groves and, of course, vineyards.
Caiaffa’s 25 hectares of vines are all certified organic. To the north of Cerignola on the plain proper, around Tressanti, their vineyards are planted with the local black varieties
Nero di Troia
. They produce varietal wines from the first three, along with an Aglianico / Nero di Troia blend. It’s hot here but the vines benefit from cool sea breezes from the Adriatic just four kilometres away.
On higher, cooler ground to the southeast of Cerignola, towards Canosa, lie their white grape vineyards, planted with
vines. These are blended 50/50 to produce both a still and a sparkling white. Beyond Canosa, in the higher Castel del Monte, they have more Fiano and Nero di Troia, the latter used for rosé.
