Puglia's Mediterranean climate and warm people create an enticing location to learn about both local grape growing, winemaking, and global business. This fertile agricultural region located in the "heel of Italy's boot" is the largest of Italy's wine producing regions. Puglia is also known for its fine cuisine, local traditions, fascinating history, and breathtaking architecture.
