It can be a heart sinking moment when a grower's family member has been sent to ask you to try their wines, but this is how we came across Lupo Maria. The introduction from Lupo’s nephew wasn’t encouraging “I’m not sure they’re great but let me show them to you and then I can tell him to get off my back…”
But he was wrong. Very wrong. We loved them. They were completely different from anything we’d tasted from Puglia. These wines are light, mineral and have a real freshness. The alcohol is not excessive either. Job done. We wanted them!
As it turned out the family – who all have other jobs – had never exported before so we had to be patient. In fact, the wines had very much been made for personal consumption: family christenings, birthdays and weddings. So we feel very fortunate to be part of the extended Lupo Maria family, but you shouldn’t be constrained to drinking these wines only at family celebrations. Try them anytime!
