The Motolese family has always been engaged in agriculture, going back all the way to ancient times.
The agricultural history of the Motolese family has its roots in the 19th century, even earlier than 1850, and since then, through 8 generations, the passion for cultivation of grapes and olives has been passed along as the business of every day’s work.
The business is currently made up of three fortified “Masserie”, or farms, with over 200 hectares of land in the heart of the Puglia region. The properties of Masseria Angiulli Grande and Masseria Rosario are located in the Salento district while Masseria la Cattiva is located in the hilly Murgia Barese district.
Since 1998 the company has been carrying out a process of renewal from both the agronomic and technological standpoint, involving over 60 hectares of vineyards and over 12,000 olive trees. This has enabled the company to present itself on the national and international markets with products strongly characterized by the quality of the raw materials, without neglecting the typical characteristics of the region of origin.
With Tenute Motolese brand sells Primitivo and Negroamaro wines and extra virgin organic olive oil, the business offer flagship productions.
Tenute Motolese organizes tastings and guided tours of its premises and will be happy to show you its cellars, vineyards and centuries-old olive groves. It is also possible to enjoy a pleasant stay in the historic Masserias, now organized as comfortable guest farm accommodations.
