The Palamà Winery is located in Cutrofiano, Salento region in Puglia, since 1936.
The wines are obtained from the native Apulian vines growing on espaliers or small trees: Negroamaro, Primitivo and Malvasia Nera vines are used to produce pure or blended wines. Ninì and his family are personally responsible for the vines, for harvesting and for wine making.
In 1996 the cellar has started to produce its first bottles, and it reached an important role on international markets from the very beginning. From that moment on, the mission has been to never stop searching for an always better quality.
International press and wine guides have always written enthusiastic comments about Palamà wines.
