Masca del Tacco
In 2010 Felice Mergè, bought and restored a building long known as the Cooperativa Comunale dei Produttori di Erchie, which had been established in 1949. He renamed it Masca del Tacco and brought the building back to its original rural splendor. Masca del Tacco subsequently expanded its vineyards in the areas of Veglie and Torricella. The warmth of the land and the influence of the sea from the Salentina peninsula, the hard-working hands of farmers, the weather: all result in extremely unique wines.
Tradition, identity and territory as well as passion, commitment and experience are the values shared by the winery. Masca Del Tacco continues to grow native grapes, making use of the soil potentiality. The vineyards are tended to manually, winemaking is traditional, and the use of aging woods is never too invasive, so as to obtain wines which are as pure as possible.
