Morella winery

THE MAKER: Morella

Morella winery, founded in 2000 by Lisa Gilbee, is one of the most interesting exponents of Puglia’s wine. A lot of attention to detail and care go into the range of Morella wines, hand-picking, basket pressing, manual plunging, all of which pay off in their wines. A project born out of love for the vineyard of old bush vines; Lisa Gilbee had clear ideas from the beginning, to make wines that had a territorial identity with an absolute respect for nature. Modernity and tradition are combined to perfection in Lisa's wines, always pure and of great complexity
