~ OUR FAMILY
Infused with love from our family over many generations, MADIA is a labor of love celebrating superior winemaking from the sun-kissed land of Puglia.
Winemaking has always been an integral part of our family's history. In the late 1800's Nicola Napoletano was a pioneer in the Puglia winemaking tradition, his great-grandchildren Nicola Colelli and Tina Ippolito joined forces to co-create the MADIA label in his honor.
Uncompromised quality, family-tradition and divine feminine energy is the force behind MADIA. We pride ourselves in being one of the best boutique wineries in Southern Italy, specializing solely in the highest quality of small-batch niche wines.
~ OUR GRAPES
There are many legends that surround the ancient and mystical Primitivo grape native to Puglia. Some believe that Primitivo was the wine served at the last supper and others say that it is called Primitivo because it is thought to be the first, or Primo, grape. For certain we know that it is called Primitivo as it's the first grape to ripen amongst the others.
Native to Puglia is the relatively rare Bombino Nero grape, meaning "small bomb" or "young child" in the Pugliese dialect. Rosato wines have always been an integral part of the Puglia winemaking culture. The striking color and extremely juicy pulp of the pure Bombino Nero makes it the perfect grape for exceptional rose' wines.
