We can say that we were the first in Puglia to vinify the primitivo with a modern style.
What makes Primitivo such a special grape? Genetically identical to the Californian Zinfandel, Primitivo is, according to Mark, "like many of the Italians I have known: generous, friendly, passionate and authentic ". A Mano Primitivo is Italian at heart: elegant, interesting, complex and with a high drinkability index!
The greatest satisfaction is to think that there are thousands of people who are having a fantastic evening thanks to A Mano Primitivo.
To be fully enjoyed like all the little pleasures of life.

Vinification: in the cellar the ripe grapes are pressed and cooled. Fermentation, kept low, proceeds for several weeks.
Aging: after pressing the wine is left to rest for the whole winter in concrete tanks (no aging in wood) then 6 months in the bottle.


A Mano

Mark is a winemaker and comes from California while Elvezia is from Friuli. They met in Sicily in 1997. In 1998 Mark proposed to visit Puglia to see the old Primitivo vineyards. According to studies by the University of Davis in California Primitivo and Californian Zinfandel are genetically identical. The expanse of old sapling vineyards is an enchanting sight for anyone, let alone an American winemaker. They immediately felt a strong attraction for this region. It was supposed to be a short vacation. They never left! Since then nothing has changed: they produce excellent wines using only native Apulian grapes. They propose a contemporary style with the utmost respect for the territory. They offer extraordinary quality at fair prices. Why A Mano? Because we feel like craftsmen. We take care of every detail from the vineyard to the bottle with the same passion that is dedicated to truly handmade products.
