The Santi Dimitri farm was born in Galatina (Lecce_Puglia/Italy) in 1996 at the behest of Enzo Vallone. Passion for wine and love for the territory, they lead this far-sighted, great entrepreneur to want to give continuity to the long history of his family’s winegrowers. In fact, the Vallone family moved to the early 17th century in what was then the Terra D’Otranto. The first links of the Vallone family with the Salento wine sector date back to 1690.
After the untimely death of Enzo Vallone, since 2014 the company has been run by his sons Carlo and Edoardo, who continue in the family business of which Angelo Vallone was the founder three centuries earlier.
The name Santi Dimitri (San Demetrio) derives from the Masseria Santi Dimitri dating back to the 16th century, which gives its name to the area where the land on which the company is located falls.
In 2005 the modern winery was inaugurated, designed by the architect Luca Scacchetti. Inside, the suggestive barrel cellar with exposed rock walls.
The company owns 200 hectares of land for the production of wine, oil and cereals. 60 hectares are planted with vines and supply the grapes for their own labels. The vineyards are located in the territory of Galatina and Cutrofiano. Vines grown are Primitivo, Negroamaro, Aleatico, Fiano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Bianco.
The company Santi Dimitri was included in the Wine Guide of Quattrocalici because it is one of the most important wineries in the province of Lecce. The company now produces 150,000 bottles a year.
