Mini lesson on Apulian wines & food-wine pairing led by experts

The Apulian flagship winery of a Venetian historical wine family

Perfect wine pairing luxury fish & seafood lunch by the sea

FEUDO DI SANTA CROCE: the Apulian flagship winery of a Venetian historical wine family, TINAZZI, reveals its secrets.

Puglia: love at first sip for a Venetian family.

In 2001, during a trip to Salento, Gian Andrea Tinazzi understood immediately the potentiality of local vineyards and decides to buy the Feudo Croce farm, a splendid farmhouse surrounded by vineyards whose name evokes the Menhir La Croce, a megalithic monument in the area indicating an important intersection of Greco-Roman roads.

Here, in Puglia, a region rich in traditions and hospitality, we’re producing with high quality wines dedicated to promoting the soul of the territories, safeguarding tradition while seeking innovation.

We’re a family and a company that embraces the values of integrity, humility, passion and sustainable creativity.

Immerse yourself in the arcane beam of these sunny Mediterranean vineyards, taste the entire range of our powerful wines, relax with a perfect wine pairing fish lunch by the sea.

Feudo di Santa Croce Primitivo di Manduria LXXI 2013
A burly, brambly red, underscored by tarry smoke and underbrush notes, offering flavors of blackberry coulis, herb-marinated black olive, grilled mushroom and ground spice.
This shows muscle that recommends it to short-term cellaring, made accessible by integration and balance.
