The vineyard portion of the estate currently measures 86 acres. Li Veli highlights the region’s principal native varietals, Verdeca for white wine, and Negroamaro and Primitivo, which are made into powerful, inky dark red wines of great character and elegance. Through proper vineyard management and vinification, Li Veli has established a new quality benchmark for wines from Puglia. ) The grapes are hand-picked from organically farmed vineyards planted on clay with limestone rock at an elevation of 229 feet.
