ABOUT THE WINERY

Contrade is a product line of Masseria Li Veli started by the Falvo family in 2015, using high-quality Negroamaro, Malvasia, and Chardonnay grapes grown by a small group of local farmers. The wines are produced on-site, near their vineyards of origin, and then blended and bottled at Masseria Li Veli. The two wines in the Contrade line, a white and a red, provide quality wines of distinctive character and style with good market value—wines that can be served by themselves as a casual drink or with a wide range of foods. 

Contrade (pronounced kohn-TRA-day; singular contrada) is a southern Italian term for parcels of vineyard land that have been known by recognized names for a long time. Typically, these parcels were divided from one another by rows of trees, stone walls, creeks, or other identifiable features. The vineyards of Masseria Li Veli are mostly in Contrada Veli, which has been recognized by name since at least the 17th century. Other growers for this project are in nearby contrade. 

The Contrade label is styled after the rose window of the baroque Basilica di Santa Croce in the city of Lecce to the south.
