Elegance, fruit purity, and biodiversity are at the heart of organic Puglian winery Caiaffa, run by the passionate Marco Caiaffa. In Puglia’s northern tip, the climate and resulting wines are quite different from the Puglian norms. Based in the town of Cerignola, in relatively recent times, Caiaffa’s vineyards were completely submerged in water. The mineral rich soils and huge cooling influence from the Mediterranean sea mean that red grapes like Primitivo and Negroamaro express themselves in much a much lighter and more floral manner.

Marco Caiffa is the third generation in his family to cultivate grapes on their land and today they have just over 30 acres of area under vine. Organic certified for many years, the Caiaffa winery is completely dedication to biodiversity and firmly believe that their wines taste better as a result. We have been wowed by their elegant expressions of Puglian red grapes that are usual known for power and meatiness. Preferring more delicate, bright and fresh expressions with only minimal use of oak, Caiaffa’s wines are beautifully pure and extremely versatile. The Caiaffa Primitivo offers wild strawberry, red cherry and smoky flavours, whilst the Negroamaro has darker berry fruit and a warm, mineral undertone. At their pricepoint, you won’t find many more expressive red wines that these!
