First class tour and wine tasting. Thank you Katia we had a perfect tasting with some meats and cheeses.
Loved the filling station for wine but the Primitivo they have in bottles is a different class.

Although difficult to find (GPS hopeless) well worth the trouble to find.
Katia Caragua gave us a first class visit to the museum and then to an excellent wine tasting. We have a vineyard and know a lot about wine, Katia knows more. Knowledgeable, articulate and friendly: bravo.
The wine tasting was accompanied by breads, meats, cheeses, almond cakes etc which matched each wine.
Thoroughly recommended.

We popped in because we thought it looked interesting. There was a Harry Potter car in the entrance. All was nicely presented, clean and spacious. We wandered around throughout the whole space, but never once did any member of staff ask if we would like to do a wine tasting.

This is a great museum of the history of primitivo wine. We had a tour from a lovely Italian lady with great English. The tour which is mainly underneath the main shop is very intersection going right back to how the wine was made many years ago. The tour included 4 different wines to taste of our choice plus nibbles for €15 each which is excellent value for money. We bought some delicious wine afterwards at a great price. Must visit

We discovered, upon visiting the Puglia region, that they had a special local wine there called Primitivo, and couldn’t wait to try it. We drank it at several different restaurants and were never disappointed. We learned about this wine cooperative and were very impressed by the tour given of the museum and the wine tasting. The museum featured a model of a wine village, furnishings and vintage tools. Locals come in to fill jugs with the house wine from what looks like gas pumps! We even were able to order wine to ship home to the U.S. Highly recommend if you like wine!!

As wine lovers visiting Puglia, we could not miss out on this museum, which in fact is a cooperative of Primitivo growers and producers in Manduria, home to this grape variety. As most Pugliese, the people here are very friendly and accommodating, managing to arrange a last-minute visit for us.

The English-language (by excellent Katia) visit includes an explanation of locally produced grapes, a tour of the museum to illustrate local farmer life, and a tasting. If you like wine and plan to visit Puglia, I recommend you book a tour.

Arrived here only to find that to get a tour you need to book a week in advance. When I asked at the centre about a tour tomorrow was directed to an email address.
