Slogan “Vineyard is passion” sintetize the company's philosophy of Cardone winery.
The history of Cardone winery, surrounded by the picturesque landscape of the Itria Valley, began in the 70′s, when grandad Giuseppe and his son Franco bought a winery on the outskirts of Locorotondo and established what is now one of the oldest and most prestigious family-run wineries in Puglia, already in its third generation with Marianna and Vito.
Today’s winery owes everything to the initiative of Giuseppe Cardone, the oldest of seven children, a man of great intelligence and intuition especially for the business: in fact he devoted always himself to commerce (buying and selling everything that he could) and in the late 60's he began to attend the wine markets of the northen regions increasing fame and esteem for him also in the north of Italy.
He had no other hobbies other than the love for his only son, Franco, who he strongly desired to have at his side, as soon as he finished his studies. A wish fulfilled in the 70′s, which was fully realized with the purchase of a winery in Locorotondo.
It is under the guidance of Franco, helped by a team of qualified professional winemakers and agronomists selected by him, that the family company specialized in the production of high quality wines.
Cardone company has become one of the oldest wineries in Puglia, thanks to its ability to combine the ancient heritage of regional winemaking tradition, passion and knowledge of the past combined with modern technology.
Since its beginning, Cardone company has never lost track of its main objective:
to produce wines, from both local and international varieties of grapes, which represent the quality of a territory.
And so, from the Locorotondo to the Negroamaro, from Pinot Noir to Chardonnay, wines by Cardone are the natural fruit of the earth/land.
The production of Cardone wines is deliberately limited to ensure maximum quality through inspections and experimentation affecting the whole process, from picking to bottling.
