1943 marks the birth of Five Roses and the improvement of the bottling line that has seen our rosé being the first ever bottled in Italy and sold first of all in USA. The name "Five Roses" derives from a "contrad" belonging to the family, so called since for several generations each de Castris had 5 children.
In the '60s, the direction of the company was handled by Cavaliere del Lavoro, Salvatore Leone de Castris and thanks to him the company had an important development, both locally and internationally. His know-how, of continuous improvement, is now carried on by his son Piernicola Leone de Castris, managing director since late '90s.
The winery’s production is very rich: red, white and rosé Doc wines (Salice Salentino, Locorotondo, Copertino, Primitivo di Manduria), interesting Igt Salento and Puglia wines, sparkling rosé and white wines; a distillate and an extra-virgin olive oil of fine value.
