La casa del Susumaniello

The Rubino Family

This is a story of family, a story of love for a land and its rediscovery. The sun of Puglia, the traditions of Salento reinterpreted with a vibrant entrepreneurial spirit passed on from father to a son. A project which saw the light in the early 1980s, in a farm established by Tommaso Rubino, the first to recognize the modern viticultural potential of a territory with such an important past. His son Luigi, assisted by his wife Romina in all aspects of marketing and communication, has taken on this entrepreneurial legacy, bringing all his passion to the family company and making it an ambassador of Apulian viticulture in the world.

The Recovery Project

The popularity of Susumaniello declined sharply in the early 90s, as many Apulian growers were driven to explant their less productive vineyards. Luigi Rubino, a long-time connoisseur of this grape’s unique qualities, chose to stake his company’s fortunes on the rediscovery and promotion of one of Puglia’s most identitarian varieties. It is grown in the estate of Jaddico, on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, 8 kilometres north of Brindisi, in a 20-hectare single vineyard.
