COMPANY

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.

WINERY

The winery is in Depressa, in the ancient wine cellar which had been abandoned for many years. It was built towards the end of the nineteenth century in the village just down the road opposite the Winspeare family castle.

A small monument of industrial architecture, with cross vaults in Lecce stone, following local building tradition.

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.
