Castel di Salve was established in 1885 by Antonio Winspeare. After more than a century, it is renewed by is grand-nephew, Francesco, who continues to run it whit care and passion. Castel di Salve selected old vineyards with great potential and chose just the very best terrain to plant new vines. Then Castel di Salve, a 150 year old winery, was painstakingly restored. Just one thought in mind: to create exceptional wines.logo

Top quality wines come from top quality grapes, so you’ll find us in our vineyards every single day, personally checking every detail of the cultivation process.

We focus on local Salento varieties like verdeca, negroamaro, primitive, malvasia nera di Lecce – but also other varieties are used, if exclusively italian grapes.

The goal is to give to the wines the stunning red colour of the local soil, the wild fragances of the Mediterranean, the heat of the Salento sun, and even a hint of the sea.
