The great success of the project “The Vineyard on the Copertino Castle” – a dream bringing together history and future, agriculture, culture and tourism – has crowned the 2015, 80th anniversary of Cupertinum foundation.

* Top Hundred (the best 100 wines emerging) of Golosario to Primitivo Salento Igt;

* Golden Star of the Touring Club to Copertino Doc Riserva (juicy, relaxed, engaging, priceless for the price, like all the wines of this cooperative)

* Dolce Puglia of the Italian Sommelier Association to the Glykòs Passito Salento Igt (“marvelous Olfactory effluents … rich taste, elegant and persistent, inlaid with silky tannins”);

* Without forgetting the Star awarded by Espresso I Vini d’Italia to all production (“cooperative among the most commendable, high-quality, representative of the territory, with a defined, recognizable and stable style. The reserves in particular, paradigmically represent the Negroamaro grape and make this winery an indispensable address”);

* The inclusion in Vignaioli and Wines of Italy of Corriere della Sera (with encomium to Negroamaro, Copertino Doc and Squarciafico Rosato); “These results and acknowledgements make us proud and are an important recognition of our members’ work and of our qualitative project”, says Francesco Trono, President of the noble cooperative.
