"Produtori di Manduria" or "Consorzio Produtori Vini" was founded as a company in 1928, when a small group of "enlightened" winemakers decided to unite around the most precious variety of the area - Primitivo di Manduria. The original name was the "Federation of Wines", until in 1932 the company officially obtained the legal status of a cooperative and became one of the strongest institutions of the area with the name "Consorzio Produttori Vini e Mosti Rossi superiori da taglio per la zona di Manduria" . The management of the cellar is characterized by impressive stability. Since its inception, there have been only 5 presidents. Throughout its existence, the winery has had one goal – to increase the volume of Primitivo di Manduria wine produced and to reveal the enormous potential of these wines on the world wine scene. As a result, it currently owns 900 ha of its own vineyards. For years, wines from the region were sent to northern Italy and even France to improve their wines, which lacked strength, power and color. The managers of the "Produtrori di Manduria" are the people who changed the history of Primitivo di Manduria by creating wines such as Lyrica, Elegia, Sonnetto, Madrigale, which, in addition to success in Italy, captured the attention of the world's wine critics, who quickly gave the winery the title "Maestri di Primitivo ". Today, in addition to being where the winery was built in 1932, it is certified as a "Sustainable Company" by E-QUALITAS, due to its clear vision, attention to the environment and strong regional importance. The building is open for visits, with a large part of it converted into a museum that recreates the history of the wine culture of the area.
