Just like a jazz orchestra, a modern winery needs the inventiveness and skill of the great soloists and the value of the whole group.

THE TEAM

Luigi Rubino. Admiration, loyalty and courage. These are the feelings that bind Luigi Rubino to the land of Salento. He’s the one investing in the vineyards, he rationalizes them, selecting the vine varieties to be planted or recovered. His vision is clear and simple: a strong attention to the promotion of native local varieties. Luigi is the real soul of the company. He manages production, marketing strategy, relationships with foreign buyers and much more. But at the same time he seeks comparison and the contribution of every single unit in the team, starting from his wife Romina.

Romina Leopardi. Romina has Apulian blood in her veins but she was born and raised on the other side of the world, in Australia. She belongs to that Mediterranean land that is Salento, but she lives this bond with the logical rigour of an Anglo-Saxon. She is in charge of marketing and communication and she takes care also of selecting human resources. At the same time, it is not rare to find her beside the employees helping out with the different daily tasks. She firmly believes in organisation, risk prevention and team playing and is a proud member of Italian Wine Women Association.

WINE TOURISM

The women’s harvest

In the vineyard, the heart of viticulture, most of the work is entrusted to women. It’s a job full of tasks which require care, skill and attention, and the Brindisi women have achieved a truly unique degree of experience. In their faces and their gestures there is the harmony of who is creating his own path of life, staying on his land, preserving his own culture and know-how.

Tenute Rubino recognizes manual labour as an essential factor for achieving quality and prestige. The Women’s harvest is a project to promote work in the vineyards as one of the key factors of the entire production process. All this translates into an event, organized every year in the estate of Jaddico, in one of the first weekends of September. A day of celebration in the countryside, open to journalists and to the public, during which we celebrate the great work of the women of Salento.
