Just as the vines go through the years among bad weather and changes, guarding theirs fruits, they know no limits of space, but only the attentions of those who take care of them through time.
Cantine Merinum tells the dreams of a girl who chases her passions
A memory became wine
My passion for wine founds its roots in a memory that dazzles my mind of green light, on a warm summer afternoon, in my beloved granfather’s vineyard.
Very often, history gives to wine a soul and a heart, leaving at the time the task of creating a great wine. So, I turned that beautiful memory into wine, going back to cultivating those vines, able to bring you back in time, talking about my origins and my land, telling a story to the new generations, destined to last forever.
The Merinum Cellars born in Vieste in the Foresta Umbra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, from the strong passion for the world of wine, a passion that is passed on from generation to generation from father to son. Quality is our main goal, we work autochthonous vines of the territory, such as Bombino Bianco, Nero di Troia, Sussumaniello and Malvasia Nera. We provide our guests, through our wines, an experiential service, aimed at the enhancement of the Gargano territory.
