Castel di Salve was established in 1885 by Antonio Winspeare. After more than a century, it is renewed by his grand-nephew, Francesco, who continues to run it with care and passion.

VINEYARDS

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.
Castel di Salve selected old vineyards with great potential and chose just the very best terrain to plant new vines
We focus on local Salento varieties like verdeca, negroamaro, primitivo, malvasia nera di Lecce – but also other varieties are used, if exclusively italian grapes.
