Cantina Due Palmeis a cooperative society located in Cellino San Marco (Brindisi_Puglia/Italy) born from the will of Angelo Maci, the third generation of a family of winemakers. Founded in 1989, the winery aims to make wine from the native grapes of Negroamaro, Black Malvasia, Primitivo and Susumaniello. Today, these grapes are joined by those of Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Pinot noir and white, Chardonnay and Sauvignon. The production is differentiated into 90% of red grapes and 10% of white grapes. Average annual production of about 200,000 quintals of grapes.
The Cooperative has about 1200 members conferring between the provinces of Lecce, Brindisi and Taranto, a territory which for centuries has been dedicated to quality viticulture.
Over the years, Cantine Due Palme has incorporated other historic social cellars: the Cantina Sociale Riforma Fondiaria of Cellino San Marco established in 1955 and the Cantina Sociale Angelini of San Pietro Vernotico and the Cantina San Gaetano of Lizzano. Currently, Cantina Due Palme has 5 wineries, confirming itself as one of the largest cooperative centres in the whole of Puglia and southern Italy.
The heart of the production is the Cellino San Marco winery. Here all the phases of production, from the cellar to the ageing up to the bottling line, are guaranteed by meticulous quality controls.
Cantina Due Palme is one of the few Cooperatives in Italy to boost the description on the back label of “Integrally produced” wines in the company. This is quality assurance and traceability of a unique supply chain, which allows you to follow the evolution of the raw material at any time, from the bunch of grapes to the glass of wine.
Today the Cooperative produces 6 D.O.P. (Protected Designation of Origin): Salice Salentino red and white, Primitivo di Manduria, Brindisi, Squinzano and Lizzano.
