PRESS RELEASE FROM LINA STORES
At Lina Stores, we aim to provide the highest quality artisanal products by using only the best ingredients in our dishes and products. This is only possible thanks to the tireless dedication, commitment and passion of the excellent producers and suppliers we are lucky enough to collaborate with – indeed, some have been working with us since we first opened our doors eight decades ago!
To celebrate our valued partnerships and the incredible people behind the products we use, we are excited to announce our blog seriesMeet the Makers. In this series, we will introduce some of the exceptional people we work with, who are so very integral to bringing the best possible produce to our delicatessens and restaurants.
Join us on this exciting journey as we delve into the stories of our exceptional partners and the remarkable products they create. Starting with Terre di San Vito, a family-run business based in Puglia, who make the finest quality extra virgin olive oil for us. We spoke to Monique Elena, the Commercial Director for Terre di San Vito, to learn more about the family and their produce.
LAUNCHING OUR EXCLUSIVE LIMITED EDITION ORGANIC IL VESCOVO BLACK LABEL
EXCLUSIVE BLACK LABEL IL VESCOVO
Our limited edition Il Vescovo is something very special. It is a blend of our Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Carménère (IGT) grapes. It is a smooth, unique and elegant blend that is rich and full-bodied. An incredibly generously balanced red wine.
The grapes which are hand cut, are vinified with a temperature-controlled fermentation. They undergo a long maceration period so the silky, sublime tannins, colour and aromas can be developed. We age this robust, limited edition wine in steel barrels for 12 months so the flavour can develop. The black label Il Vescovo is then placed in our cellar where it is left to mature for a further 7 years in the bottle.
HAND MADE TERRACOTTA JARS WITH EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
If you're looking for something really special then why not buy one of our hand made TERRACOTTA JARS, containing our extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil in a number of beautiful colours?
Handmade locally in the village, they are the same style vessels that the people of Puglia have been storing their olive oil and wine in for centuries, each with a completely unique and distinctive design.
From Our Farm, To Your Door
Our signature products are: organic wine, organic olive oil and marinated vegetables.
We use traditional, Southern Italian methods for collecting our olives and grapes as well as in the making of our sundried tomatoes and vegetables marinated in olive oil.
These Southern Italian methods really mean getting the staff and the whole family together: sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles and cousins – including the family from England (timing holidays to coincide with harvest time).
We are proud to announce, we now have organic status for our grapes, extra virgin olive oil, Malbec grape jam and our 'Slow Food' carrot jam.
Love and passion are what drive us here at Terre Di San Vito. We started with a small plot of land and just a few vines, olive trees and a plot for vegetables.
We soon realised this rust-coloured soil was the perfect environment for growing exceptionally flavoursome grapes and produce.
Over the past 15 years, we have increased the size of our farm to 45 hectares and this has enabled us to extend the vineyards, build a cellar and increase the number of olive trees whilst still maintaining traditional values and sustainable methods for working the land.
Our sundried tomatoes are grown and prepared at our family farm using our traditional secret family recipe. They are then transferred into jars for you to enjoy.
Try one and we bet you'll eat them all! ❤️SHOP NOW
All the grapes for our wine are grown on our family farm in the picturesque, southern region of Puglia (IGT) and have organic status.
With the Mediterranean sun shining over the region, our vineyards grow a range of plump juicy grapes including some that are not indigenous to Puglia (IGT) such as the Malbec grape. However, they flourish on our land and this has resulted in an incredibly flavoursome product range and an award winning wine (Il Vescovo, Bellavita winner 2015).
We have invested our passion and expertise in developing and refining all of our cultivating, harvesting and bottling methods in order to create sustainable, high quality produce and grapes that are unique to the region. We grow a range of grapes: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Primitivo and Sauvignon Blanc. For our delicious sparkling wine, we use only the Pinot Noir grape.
To reflect our passion for tradition, sustainability and flavour, we have shaped our wine bottles to reflect the history of viniculture and we source these locally. Our corks are made from eco-friendly, 100-percent recyclable sugarcane and every bottle of wine at Terre Di San Vito is hand finished by dipping it in wax to seal the cork before the labels are secured.
This is why we are able to offer something special with our Puglian (IGT) wine.

Terre di San Vito, our family farm
Buon giorno! I am Francesco De Napoli and Terre Di San Vito is my family farm. We are situated in the beautiful town of Polignano, approximately 34km south of Bari and close to the unmistakable azure waters of the Adriatic Sea. We have a treasure trove of ancient olive groves, vineyards, tomato and vegetable crops where our delicious and healthy produce is grown.
I love my land and I’m so proud of our traditional products. They reflect the true flavours of Italy: wine, oil, fruit and vegetables. It means a lot to us to share the Puglian traditions, culture and of course, our love of food and wine! This is why we make our products. Our range of delicious wines, from the rich, red, full bodied flagship Il Vescovo, to the aromatic white, fruity Apeneste are our passion.
