Caiaffa works to the principle of synergistic agriculture. They believe that nature is man's greatest collaborator, and that nature maintains balance. Certified organic, they do not use insecticides or pesticides in order to encourage a balanced  ecosystem and work at one with nature.

They are especially protective of the insects which live on and around their vines; they work in harmony with them and have established a symbiotic relationship in which both parties benefit. For the bugs make it possible for micro-oxygenation and provide the means for nutrients needed to make passage through the soil. This is reflective in their branding and their packaging.

Caiaffa is located Cerignola, a coastal town in the beautiful Tavoliere delle Puglie, northern Puglia. The Tavoliere area was once completely submerged in sea water, which has influenced a very special climate, in abundance of flora and fauna. The soils here are rich in limestone and the vines benefit from the mild Mediterranean weather. Through these wines, you can truly taste the authentic flavour of the land. The grape varieties the estate works with are Primitivo, Negroamaro, Uva di Troia, and Fiano.

Caiaffa’s wines are beautiful examples of the benefits to a harmonic relationship with nature and genuine respect and care for the environment.

Producer Fact SheetDetails

"Labelled as Fiano, this is actually Minutolo, an aromatic Puglian variety previously known as Fiano Aromatico. Organically-farmed vineyards in the north of Puglia are cooled by sea breezes and produce this ripe, grapey wine showing orange blossom, pear and bitter walnut. Fleshy and at under £15 it offers great value for money." 90 points, Natalie Earl, Decanter (September 2021)

(Nero di Troia 2022) "Spontaneous fermentation and brief ageing result in this plump Nero di Troia, offering aromas of sour cherries intertwined with pepper and smoke. The easygoing palate displays fragrant blackberries up front, energised by dried herbs, light tannins, and a touch of dark spice. Gluggable and food-friendly." 89 points, Raffaele Mosca, Decanter (September 2023)
