Winery Conti Zecca, located in Puglia has five centuries of history with a rich tradition, passion and innovation that have made her one of the most important wine producers in Apulia. Dzekka family moved to Italy in 1500, where he began farming on his own estates. The family business has evolved over the centuries, and in 1935 Count Alcibiades Dzekka endowed with courage and entrepreneurial abilities, decided to start the production of wine from their own vineyards. The wine cellar was built in Leverano, and this city has become one of the most important food in the areas of Puglia and South Italy. After World War II, the son of Alcibiades, Count Giuseppe, introduced new technology of growing grapes and wine production began bottling wine in the bottle.
Today the heirs of Count Alcibiades - Francesco, Luciano and Mario continues the family tradition, giving himself entirely family business: the choice of the ideal sites for planting the best vineyards, selection of agronomic technologies and identify the optimal harvest time for vinification to bottling of wine in the bottle. Brothers do not forget about the traditions - like many years ago, the grapes are fermented for a long period, strictly following the ancient rules. This creates high quality wines, some of the most outstanding in Puglia.
Conti Dzekka produces high quality red, pink and white wines from the vineyard area of 320 hectares, which are located between the Salice Salentino Leverano and Puglia in the south, where the family owns four farms (cantaloupe, Saracen, Donna Marcia and Santo Stefano). This area is well known for producing great wines DOC. On wine farms Conti Dzekka grow local vines (Primitivo, Negroamaro, Malmsi, Aglianico, Fiano, Chardonnay and Vermentino), and international (Cabernet Sauvignon). Strict control and care of the vineyards ensures high quality wines at an affordable price.
