Cantine Due Palme Soc Coop Agricola : A winery of modern technology

Cantine Due Palme is the story of a dream; and the vision of this man born into the third generation of a local winemaking family who having inherited the winery, then invested his own great passion and his love for this land.

Angelo Maci is certainly no exception; the opposite in fact. Uprooting him from the depths of Salento – where he was born in 1943 – from its vines and that fervent, amiable community would deprive him of every trusted point of reference. That is, the topos and humus, in which his personality grew. It is the only route to understanding the role played by the man; or rather, his daring projects and legitimate ambitions.

“To cultivate a good Vineyard, first of all you have to cultivate the man. Wine exists because there are people who till the soil and look after grapes, day in day out” – Angelo Maci

A MODERN WINERY

Cantine Due Palme is a Social Cooperative established in 1989. There were only 15 members in the beginning and today the Company has 1,000 growers who own between them 2,500 Ha of vineyard between the provinces of Brindisi, Lecce and Taranto . Over this period Due Palme has merged with 4 other large wineries: ex-Produttori Agr. in Cellino, Fondiaria Reform in Cellino (founded in 1955), Cantina Sociale Angelini in San Pietro Vernotico (1961), Cantina SanGaetano in Lizzano (1959) and Cantina Riforma Fondiaria in Monteroni Arnesano (1960). The main headquarters of the Cooperative is situated in Cellino San Marco, the beating heart of all commercial activities and vinification, and measures 45,000 square meters. The highlight of the production is the cellar. Here the finest wines are aged and stored in barrels of French and American oak, giving a total capacity of 10.000Hl of wine. The cellar overlooks the beautiful “Selvarossa” conference room with 800 sets, which houses the weekly growers’ meetings. Unique in the world because it is inside the cellar, it measures 1,500 square meters and is 5 meters underground. Here in 2014 a unique project in Italy called “Palmetta” has been carried out together with Simonit & Sirch Group: a pruning school consisting of the realignment of plants in the “Alberello Pugliese” vineyards. This allows the mechanical harvest and superior quality production. Thus, the history of Cantine Due Palme becomes the story of an entire territory. 500 square meters and is 5 meters underground. Here in 2014 a unique project in Italy called “Palmetta” has been carried out together with Simonit & Sirch Group: a pruning school consisting of the realignment of plants in the “Alberello Pugliese” vineyards. This allows the mechanical harvest and superior quality production.
