The Museum of the Wine Primitivo Culture was created to remind the men and the objects that marked the history of wine Primitivo. The fascinating expositive journey is divided into more than thirty settings in ancient underground cisterns of a nineteenth-century cellar which have been transformed in original environments with different themes. The Museum offers to the visiting wine lovers different wine tastings accompanied by food of the authentic rural tradition gastronomy: during these tastings food and wines are described in detail as part of the local history.
The museum is situated beneath the main cantina building in what used to be the concrete / stone vats used to store the wine in the past. As you move between rooms you can tell which were used to store red or white wine based on the colours of the stained walls. The museum gives a fascinating insight into some of the history of wine making in this region but also into rural life in the south of Italy. It is a real gem.
Meanwhile, the list of wines produced by the cantina is very impressive and covers the main traditional grape varieties of this part of Puglia (fiano, negroamaro and malvasia nera). However, needless to say it is dominated by wines made from the Primitivo di Manduria grape, with four fabulous options (Memoria, Lirica, Elegia and Sonetto), six when you include their rosato and Madrigale, which is a sweet wine great with dessert. Elegia is amongst my all time favourites red wines – it really showcases the unique characteristics of the primitivo grape. I love it!

This is a lovely beach between a gorgeous little tower and a salt pit. The "Salina" salt lake attracts flocks of Flamingos. That was a lovely sight. The beach, unfortunately, does need some cleaning. Around the corner from the tower you'll find some restaurants but don't go too late no one will feed you.

Beautiful beach and clear blue sea, but the beach is never cleaned, always dirty full of algae, cigarette buts, bottles and food waste.
It is such a shame because San Pietro could be a beautiful little seaside resort, in the town itself there is not much to do, lots of fast food takeaways and mini markets.
It needs to be brought up to scratch, a few good restaurants, wine bars and the most imporant a few beach bars.
The council need to keep the beach clean.

We arrived midday as a stop over on a bicycle tour of Puglia. Like a lot of places in Puglia, it is very rare to see people in the middle of the day, we walked around the empty streets of the historic center and it felt like a ghost town, lovely but sort of creepy on a bright sunny day. At night the whole town comes to life, the streets and squares are brimming with people enjoying the good life and a proseperous town. What a difference between night and day, my friend joked that maybe everyone is a vmpire and can only come out once the sun has gone down

i recommend strolling and aside from the Duomo itself, which is very nice, the whole maze of narrow streets and former palaces is definitely worth it !

My husband and I did the tour and learned about the fascinating history of wine and grapes in the area. We then experienced the wine paired with a few tasty treats. Our favourite by far was the full bodied Elegia! It's truly like drinking complex candy. The only regret was we didn't buy more. Unfortunately, it is not available in Canada! :(

Wandering through these back lanes it is easy to appreciate how people lived in past times. There are odd nookes and crannies, odd doorways and windows. Unfortunately our visit was during a rainy afternoon so photography was not possible. Gives a good reason to return another day.
It is a shame that there is no interpretation, but that is normal in Italy.

La spiaggia più bella della zona a mio parere... fiume piccolo di acqua dolce che sbocca in mare dove i bimbi si divertono a tuffarsi e pescare... a me piace anche per il fatto che è spiaggia libera e selvaggia ... bisogna portarsi tutto ma per noi è il top.

Luogo magico, incantato, un luogo dove assaggiare e integrarti completamente con la pace della natura più selvaggia.
Un posto da visitare!
