Growing grapes

Cantina Giara is located in a magical corner of Puglia not far from Adelfia, in the province of Bari, surrounded with meadows, wild orchards, old vineyards and wild forests. Giorgio Nicassio’s family has been making wine on this beautiful land since his grandfather started in the late 80’s. This tradition is now kept alive and flourishing by Giorgio, who has dedicated his passion to making living, vibrant natural wines that express terroir and his vision without compromise. Giorgio’s unflinching and loving focus is on traditional local varieties and guiding them towards becoming unforgettable wines. These grapes include Primitivo, Verdeca, Malvasia, Greco, Fiano and Moscatello Selvatico.

The work in the vineyard follows strict biodynamic guidelines, with the aim of favoring health and biodiversity of the soils and the environment. The vineyards grow on calcareous soils and range from 35 to 65 years of age, many trained with the traditional and almost extinct “Tendone Vecchio Impianto” method. Giorgio’s “natural wine” philosophy aims at elevating the most unadulterated and pure expression of fruit and terroir. This translates in the cellar, where he only works with wild fermentations without temperature control, never using winemaking additives, fining nor filtration. The soul and strength of the skins, for both reds and especially whites, are vital elements in unleashing a wine’s potential in Giorgio’s opinion, so maceration is at the center of his work. Giorgio likes to define himself as a humble craftsman of wine, with each of his wines displaying a different character just like a living being would. From the 2020 vintage, all of the wines are bottled without addition of SO2.

100% artisans vignerons

Nous sommes dédiés et engagés à supporter les vins d'artisans vignerons. Des vins vrais, produits par de vrais artisans, de la nouvelle génération de vins naturels aux classiques bourguignons les plus traditionnels. Désolé, pas de vin industriel ici.

Vendre le vin est un art, tout autant que le faire

Vendre le vin est un art, tout autant que le faire

Nous ne sommes pas un site Direct-to-Consumer de plus. Nous ne vendons pas aux particuliers mais équipons les vendeurs, sommeliers et cavistes d'outils efficaces pour qu'ils puissent se concentrer sur leur art.

Aussi liquide que le vin

Aussi liquide que le vin

Nous pensons que le commerce devrait être aussi liquide que le vin. Processus, transactions et informations devraient circuler comme un bon vin dans un verre Zalto. C'est là qu'une plate-forme digitale peut aider.

Les Vignerons d'abord

Pour un marché efficace et viable, il faut commencer par se préoccuper des producteurs. Ceci ne peut arriver qu'en étant équitable et transparent pour ceux-ci d'abord, et ensuite pour tous les acteurs apportant de la valeur.
