The winery Feudi di San Marzano was founded in 2003 in the area of Puglia, but to cultivate grapes on this earth began thousands of years ago. Historical evidence shows that in the VII century BC there were grown grapes, and the Greeks called this area Enotria, which means "land of wine". Interestingly, the current owners of the estate Cantine San Marzano and Farnese Vini borrowed the method of growing grapes from ancient Greece, known as "alberello" - "bush" vine. This method is mentioned in the works of Senofonta and was more progressive than the "creeping" vine.
