The Cantine Due Palme is a successful example of the fact that prejudices against large cooperatives are often wrong. Because the Cantine Due Palme is large. And incredibly successful. Worldwide. This is a man's "fault". Angelo Maci. A scion of a small winemaking family in Salento recognized the problems of the winegrowers in Puglia at the end of the 1980s. Instead of quality, quantity was produced and delivered mainly as cask wine at rock-bottom prices to better known wine regions as blended wine. But Angelo Maci began to convince small winegrowers to do better, to join the cooperative and gradually increase quality, investing in modern cellar technology and sustainable cultivation.
