Michele Calò stands out as forerunner of high quality wines in what is known as the Salento peninsula, in the southern part of Puglia.  Michele Calò has been producing wine since 1954 in the province of Lecce.  Their vineyards are located in the most appropriate areas of the municipalities of Tuglie, Alezio, Parabita and Sannicolal.  Each location brings different characteristics to the wines.  Today, Michele’s sons, Fernando and Giovanni control the various phases of the activities developed and transmitted to them by their father.  They combine tradition and innovation in crafting wines that are distinctly southern Italian.
