Claudio Quarta Vignaiolo, Guagnano, Lecce, Puglia, Italy.
Three wineries, three territories, one goal: to produce wines capable of “telling” the story of the South that excites. Respect for Tradition with an inclination to the Future and a constant focus on Research and Sustainability are the cardinal directions on the compass that guide the winemaker Claudio Quarta in his quest to reinterpret wine par excellence. In 2005 the wine history of Claudio Quarta began, when he left his lab coat and a brilliant career as a researcher at his pharmaceutical company, for the role of winemaker; a return to his origins, and his continually growing passion for fine wines.
Tradition and innovation, history and future, heritage and modernity.
The key to his world is his osmotic relationship with the territories chosen for his wineries, all of which historically renown for a particular style of viticulture.
We are in Puglia for Primitivo di Manduria and Negroamaro, and Irpinia for Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo, and Taurasi. Indigenous and Authentic varietals are even greater cultural factors than productive factors. This Authenticity, when kept in constant dialogue with Innovation, creates both Excellence and Uniqueness.
Tenute Eméra, Cantina Sanpaolo and Moros.
