The wines of Alberto Longo, Puglia

Alberto Longo's  estate is located in the north of Puglia, just outside the town of Lucera. The Longo family has its farming roots in the area for over three generations.

The estate of 35 hectares released their first wines in 2005. Concentrating mainly on the indigenous grapes, Negromarao, Nero di Troia and Montepulciano, Alberto's wines have already gained a reputation as being the best of the region. The winemaker is Graziana Grassini, a protegê of Giaccomo Tachis, and well known to us for her tremendous efforts at Fattoria di Magliano in Tuscany. She has managed to bring the ripeness of fruit, typical of the south, together with a wonderful level of fresh acidity. There's an elegance, finesse, and balance to these wines which make them a firm favourite of ours. You can read more about the wines on our blog.

Customer reviews

I’ve placed two orders for two cases of wine from Chris, so far. Super experience both times (delivery outside of Dublin) and superb wines.

I stumbled across this wine merchant while searching online for a particular Spanish wine. I'm glad I did as I discovered an excellent selection of wines from that country, as well as from other regions, all at competitive prices. Excellent personal service and prompt delivery made for a great overall experience. Highly recommended

The owner Chris provides an incredible customer experience. After I had ordered online, he contacted me separately to offer additional insights into all the wines I had chosen and to give me a voucher for next time.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!
