Filippo Cassano comes from a long family tradition of agriculture and viticulture. His mission is to produce wines from his native Puglia that are rich, full bodied while retaining elegance and minerality – often rare in this region. The vineyards are farmed organically and the winemaking is rooted in a minimalist philosophy to let the wines speak purely of this place.
