Masseria Faraona was born in 2015, but the art of producing wine and the dedication to quality agriculture have a more ancient history. The company is owned by the Casillo family, which has always been involved in the agri-food sector and today is the world leader in the milling of durum and soft wheat. It is the third generation of millers to lead this imposing Coratina reality since the 1950s. The family's first farm was founded by Vincenzo Casillo in the 1970s and has slowly and steadily grown thanks to hard work and investments, which have transversally affected a large part of the crops in the Murgia area. Linked by love for their land and agriculture, the Casillo brothers have always had the goal of increasing the notoriety of the Alta Murgia thanks to the crops that best enhance the territory. A young Vincenzo Casillo A young Vincenzo Casillo Vincenzo Casillo Vincenzo Casillo At the end of the 90s Masseria Faraona was purchased, which takes its name from its previous owner, a man of Campania origins who dedicated his life to military service and decided to enjoy his seniority right in the Murgia, surrounded by the scenic beauty of the place. Immediately after the purchase, the Casillo family enriched the structure with olive groves and other fruit trees such as almond and cherry trees. The first owner of the eighteenth-century Masseria, until the 1950s, was Mr. Tarantini, a wealthy landowner in the area, who was the first to understand the high livestock vocation of the place. The first vineyards planted in 2002 produce the grapes that give rise to the whole range of our wines. Masseria Faraona, respecting its history, continues to spread the culture and territorial culture with a production of wines based on native vines: Bombino Bianco, Nero di Troia and Bombino Nero. Knowing the land, understanding its vocation, taking care of it and working it every day with passion: the production of wine is not a cliché but a real mission that starts from boundless love for one's roots. The strategy to win the challenge of globalization is undoubtedly the affirmation of "typicality", as an idea of ​​a territory that wants to remain "unique" in its identity. The concept of "unique" is made up of experiences and techniques consolidated over time: a real indigenous heritage as a culture of a people. Masseria Faraona has a clear mission: to preserve the historic viticulture of the Alta Murgia; the research and vinification of indigenous varieties continues constantly with dedication.
