Company Profie
The location is ideal, as we are situated at the crossroads of the most precious “Murgia dei Trulli” (“Apulian Stone Dwellings’ Murge plateau”) in Puglia, Italy: vineyards of wine grapes, olive groves, almond plantations and pastures of high-quality dairy cows. Land, or rather terroir, understood as an intimate relationship with a millenary tradition, which the Coppi family has preserved and passed on in Turi. The founder, oenologist Senator Coppi, ensures the high and constant quality of the wines. But, above all, good wine is produced in the vineyards. Coppi owns 100 hectares of fine properties, which include Primitivo, Negroamaro, Aleatico, Malvasia, and Falanghina, as well as another 100 that are carefully managed.

It all began in 1882, with the construction of the old winery, which nowadays was brought back to its splendor and includes our shop, modern tasting rooms with an adjoining kitchen, and a fascinating underground cellar. The turning point began in 1966, when the young winemaker Antonio Coppi started working in this Cellar. He finally bought it in 1979, transforming it into his life's mission. His passion is soon transmitted to his sons, Lisia, Miriam, and Doni. Today, Coppi wines are known all over the world.
