A family, a love story spanning Europe from Bari Vecchia to London. What a family!. filled with love and passion. A family like no other that love to eat together, travel together and party together. We are one and we are Terre Di San Vito.
We pour the very essence of Italian craftsmanship, traditional Apulian methods and love into our authentic, organic produce. None of this would be possible without the Terre Di San Vito team and family. We strongly believe that you cannot make great produce without a great team and great passion.
Even though we are a small family farm, we are fortunate to have a wonderfully hard-working, loyal and experienced team and willing family members! Over the years, we have learnt together and discovered our own way of doing things. Sharing common values and having the same goals is our recipe for success.
The owner is Francessco De Napoli (Zio Franco). He has such a passionate and creative mind – he inspires all of us. He had a dream and now it is becoming a reality. His wife (Zia Lucia) keeps everyone in line and is the most marvellous cook – she makes sure the family recipes are alive and kicking! Giovanni, the eldest son knows his wine! He works alongside his father on the farm, organises events and gives a most incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic wine-tasting experience for local and overseas visitors. Elena (the eldest) helps with the administration and Giaccamo (the youngest of Zio Franco’s children) also works on the farm and is designing a range of beauty products inspired by the Terre Di San Vito olives and wines! Look out for them!
Then we have us, the UK family! We are based in the UK but we spent our childhood in Italy. Every school holiday – off we went to see the family and enjoy the company of our 35 cousins. We loved every minute! A small farm we may be – a small family – no! Now as adults, our love for our family and traditions has remained. Johnny De Napoli is Franco’s nephew – our dad was Franco’s big brother and to say our dad loved his family, wine and food is not an understatement and we share that same love and passion. Johnny is a media executive who celebrates his Italian roots at every opportunity. He relishes drinking wine and eating the mouth-watering, traditional foods of Italy so sharing with you, the delights of the Terre Di San Vito products is his pleasure.
Whenever you are in Puglia – come and see us – you can meet the team, share our food and explore our wines! From Terre Di San Vito, with love.
