    The Tavoliere in the names of wines: here is the Terraconca, Torcervaro and PianaBianca

    The story of first harvest, the sacrifice and a final winning bet

    FOGGIA – “Wine in the movies”, is the theme of the sixth day of the Foggia Film Festival, at the Auditorium Santa Chiara. On Friday, November 25th , after the screening of VinoDentro, a film by Ferdinando Vicentini Orgnani, wine tasting will be the protagonists of the Borgo Turrito productions that narrate the territory. The rapporteurs will be: the director Ferdinando Vicentini Orgnani; The sommelier Amedeo Renzulli, delegate of the Italian Association of Sommeliers ( Ais) of Foggia; Giuseppe Lopriore, researcher at the Department of Agronomy at the University of Foggia; the professor Anna Grazia Chirolli; Luca Scapola, the wine producer of the Borgo Turrito company.

    “Our wines are a bit like a movie because they tell a story, starting from the name they bring,” explains Luca Scapola. The “Torcervaro”, for example, remembers the Cervaro, a torrent that dissolves and makes fertile the land where this red wine was born, a PGI Nero di Troia . “PianaBianca”, Apulia PGI Fiano , is the narration of that flat foliage of Tavoliere, which in the historic foggian village of Borgo Incoronata, dresses in the green mantle of vineyards. Guests can also enjoy the “Terraconca”, the Apulia PGI white Muscat wine, and “TroQué”, Apulia PGI Nero di Troia red wine , obtained from a selection of precious grapes with long maceration, followed by a passage in barriques and a further aging in bottle. These wines also tell the story of Luca Scapola, a 33-year-old businessman who runs his company since 2006. His leadership means at the same time respect for traditions and the incorporation of an innovative capacity that has put roots which lready nourishes the future. It was 2003 when Luca Scapola, then twenty years old, succeeded in leading his first harvest. Then he understood what his future would be. He would be concerned with the family business. To do so, he gave up on something. “I decided to use all my savings, about 1000 euros, to buy Chardonnay grapes from an agriculturist friend.” He did not use his father’s grapes because he wanted to maintain full autonomy in practicing what he had learned in the first two years of Viticulture and Oenology at the University of Foggia. It was a success. The produced wine was soon sold , togheter with customers’ compliments. “After that vintage, my father had the demonstration that I had the skills to innovate and give continuity to the company.” And so it happened. Three years later, in 2006, the generational replacement came to an end, and the principal, Michele Scapola, who is still today consulted by Luca for business choices, entrusted the wine company with his son. Borgo Turrito is located in Borgo Incoronata, a few kilometers from Foggia, in the heart of the Bosco Incoronata Regional Park, in a protected area of over 1000 hectares. “Wine is a living experience, culture, history and present, and this is an important element in the art of cinema.”
