124 Eméra

Tailor made tasting (old vintages) of Wine Spectator Top100 wines

Visit TWO wineries + Perfect wine tasting & pairing Apulian lunch

Visit the world’s greatest vine biodiversity collection (500 grape varieties)

TENUTE DI EMÈRA by CLAUDIO QUARTA: A father & daughter winery or the novel of a successful biologist become winegrower.

An atypical experience at the very least… You will meet extraordinary characters in extraordinary locations…

Mr. Claudio Quarta, who years ago decided to become a winemaker, was previously an entrepreneur in the field of biotechnology…

His cellars in Puglia are a architectural mix of the great tradition of Southern Italy and almost post-atomic fashionable environments…

Its wines are among the first and the very few in Puglia to have placed in the Top 100 of Wine Spectator.

Mr. Quarta did not completely abandon his passion for scientific research when he dedicated himself to oenology, he created the world’s greatest vine biodiversity collection (500 grape varieties) which you can visit.

You can also enjoy an incredible vertical (old vintages tasting) of his Wine Spectator Top 100 wine of and his exceptional Cru…

Then relax with a perfect wine pairing lunch, among traditional Apulian dishes and very special environments.

Innovation and tradition, technologies and emotions.

Claudio Quarta is one of those men about whom a novel could be written: today proudly and simply VIGNAIOLO (winegrower…), formerly geneticist biologist and pharmaceutical entrepreneur, head of the first Italian biotechnology company listed on the stock exchange… and his daughter Alessandra is his equal

Those are their two estates in Apulia and their wines, worldwide awarded…

Tenute di Eméra

Tenute di Eméra “Primitivo di Manduria Antica Masseria del Sigillo”, 2014

There’s a rich, mouthfilling quality to this medium-bodied red, offering a velvety mix of spiced cherry, mulberry and herbed olive, with accents of mocha and graphite. Plush tannins show on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2021. 2,500 cases made. —AN
