Cultivating native vines and respecting their characteristics is an act of courage and love.
But it is only in this way that in an oenological world made up of white swans, the elegance of our wine is a black swan, indeed, a Cignomoro.
When we founded Cignomoro in 2008, we had clear ideas: to challenge the standardization of flavors and give life to Apulian wines that were unique, elegant and harmonious at every sip.
This is also why we are a ”Boutique Winery”: every single bottle is part of a limited, almost pampered production, which we personally take care of from the bunch to the sip, to amaze palates who are not satisfied.
We choose to believe in our land and in the most authentic wine: this is how the most modern winemaking techniques embrace ancient practices that are almost rituals, such as hand-picking the grapes.
We love feeling like we are the courageous custodians of an ancient land, without compromise.
Cignomoro is not just a cellar, it is a method, a choice and a travel story.
Yes, because we choose to take you by the hand on a journey through time, in search of ancient flavours, in an experience made of love and passion for the land of Puglia and for its most authentic and too often forgotten flavours.
I’m Hugo Rojo de Castro, Spanish by origin but in love with Puglia, and with his wine, for a lifetime. I have lived in this land for more than 20 years, and together with my partner Ciro Matichecchia, we pay homage to it by recovering the cultivation of ancient native vines and celebrating the Apulian winemaking tradition at its peak.
Wine and its rituals have always been a tradition in my family. The vineyards in the fields of ‘my’ Puglia, my grandparents who magically transformed that fruit into a fragrant vermilion-colored wine have exerted an irresistible charm on me since I was a child. I am Ciro Matichecchia, co-founder of Cignomoro, in love with my land, its fruits, and, of course, its wine.
Each Cignomoro wine is a bottled poem to be shared with those you love, an emotion that starts from Puglia and travels all over the world. It’s time to choose yours carefully.
A collection of young wines to be enjoyed in the conviviality of a dinner at home, to start discovering wine and its magic together.
A more mature collection, obtained from the most representative native vineyards of Puglia, with modern and refined flavours.
Elegant wines, vinified in barrique, which bear the name of the company because they fully represent its philosophy.
Our wines of excellence for important occasions, which take their name from the age of the vines from which they were produced. A perfect body and intensity for unforgettable moments.
