    Puglia Wine and Region

    Puglia mapPuglia is one of the largest wine producing regions of Italy. It is found in the extreme south east of Italy, forming the ‘heel’ to the boot shape of Italy. The coastline of Puglia with both the Adriatic and the Ionian Seas is extensive. To the west Puglia borders Campania and Basilicata and to the north with Molise. Puglia’s landscape is entirely different to the bordering regions. There are no mountains, though a couple of high plateau. The climate is distinctly Mediterranean, hence hot and dry. Fortunately wine-growing and making has improved enormously in recent years throughout Puglia and work is well under way to further improve both the quality and individual identity of the local wines.
