The Fiefdom of Copertino in Salento

In the sweet plains of Puglia, close to the center of the Salento peninsula, half-way between the Ionian and the Adriatic Seas, at the crossroads of the Gulf of Taranto and Otranto Channel, lies the territory of Copertino, or more correctly known as the fiefdom of Copertino in memory of a medieval court that had chosen Copertino as its seat. The old town is built in the centre of a valley and is surrounded by the most fertile land, 15 miles southwest of Lecce. In this red-colored soil, olive and grape trees alternate harmoniously: centuries-old olive trees with big twisted trunks and grapevines with the characteristic Apulian short tree “gobelet”, which produces strong and generous wine.
