Villa Schinosa, Trani, Barletta-Andria-Trani, Apulia, Italy.
The history of Villa Schinosa is based on ancient wine traditions that have been passed down for generations. With tenacity and great determination, the last of the heirs, Corrado Capece Minutolo, is continuing their journey towards achieving new goals by coexisting tradition and innovation with the strength and the foresight to believe in their work.
Villa Schinosa extends over 200 hectares at the entrance of Trani. It is a fascinating structure that the visitor can see at the bottom of an oak boulevard. In addition to the old cellar built in 1884 and partially excavated into Trani Stone, the vineyards and the wine factory were renovated with technologically advanced oenological equipment. Around the company's body with the ancient Masseria, extraordinary during the blooming of the buganville, where the owners live, besides the vineyards, stretch modern intensive olive groves alongside secular olive groves to obtain extra-virgin olive oils of great quality. The company's production is complemented by cherry trees and almonds with organic certification.
Along with the experience of his father Ferdinando, Corrado deals with every aspect of production and commercialization of the Farm, while the commercial relations of the Villa Schinosa Wines abroad are followed by Mother Maria.
