Imagine the sun, the clear sky, the Apulia that you discover as you advance, a clear road, flanked by mighty olive trees, which crosses the verdant countryside of Salento between the Adriatic and Ionian Seas. In this setting, there is a place with a unique history, made of passion and love for the territory: the Tenute Al Bano Carrisi, today among the Treasures of Italy 2021.
Not simple Estates, but a real village, where the alleys embrace small squares and the bridges cross lakes and streams, all surrounded by the luxuriant nature of the ancient Curtipetrizzi Wood.
Once past the gate, it is difficult not to stop for a moment to breathe that magical air that only certain places have.
It all starts with a good glass of wine and a promise to keep. Thus in 1973 the Al Bano Winery was born and with it the first bottle, Don Carmelo, dedicated to the father. Born and raised in a peasant family, the well-known singer has never lost those profound values linked to his origins, the inspiring force of what, over time, has become part of the Estates.
The hotel, the restaurant, the wellness center, the winery: everything is inspired by nature, by the smells and flavors of Apulia, a welcoming refuge where you can discover and rediscover the traditions of this land, to the tune of unforgettable songs.
The Hotel Felicità offers guests an unforgettable stay: the rustic-style rooms with stone floors and refined details worked in wood, have all the comforts, perfect for enjoying the village in complete relaxation. Waking up surrounded by the green of the Mediterranean bushes, a rich breakfast with the sweet lights of the morning, a walk through the alleys, a good book in the shade of an olive tree, a dip in the splendid swimming pool of the resort or a wellness program in the Spa È la tua vita, to conclude with an aperitif by the pool with the warm colors of the sunset.
In the Don Carmelo Restaurant it is possible to savor all the taste of Mediterranean cuisine. The raw materials, the result of careful daily work by the farmers of the Estates and carefully chosen, are expertly processed by the Chef who offers every day a large and tasty menu of typical Apulian dishes, from the most traditional to those revisited with inspiration. A delight for the eyes and the palate. All accompanied by a wide selection of wines from the Al Bano Winery.
The Al Bano Winery is where it all starts. From the first white wine dedicated to his father, up to the production of ten lines of wine, sparkling grappa and even olive oil today. The wines vary from red to rosé and white, obtained from vineyards of Primitivo, Negroamaro, Salice Salentino, Chardonnay and Aleatico.
The Wineries are a magical place, with a profound charm, to visit and explore. Inside you can relive the ancient wine traditions of Puglia, which has always been the motherland of vines and olive trees, and you can breathe all the passion for the land of a man who, while flying high and far, has never lost his roots.
