Antica Masseria del Sigillo was founded in Guagnano in 1989 with the idea of producing hand-crafted wines in an area that had been taken over by large industrial operations. In 2005 Claudio Quarta, a businessman who respected this philosophy, purchased the property with the aim of continuing this approach. Today, Claudio Quarta’s wineries, Tenute Eméra (Antica Masseria del Sigillo Primitivo), Cantina Moros (Salice Salentino) and Cantina Sanpaolo (Fiano and Aglianico) are a single company and one big family. Claudio and his daughter, Alessandra and all the staff are involved in the ambitious project of reinterpreting southern Italy’s wine-growing excellence, by combining the utmost respect for tradition with progress and total commitment to environmental sustainability. The Claudio Quarta “family” believe in growth through innovation and research.The adventure began with the Tenute Eméra winery, founded in Guagnano to highlight the local Negroamaro variety in its home area; this was followed by expansion into the Primitivo di Manduria area, to explore this variety whose strong character resembles its home area of Puglia.
