Torre Dell'Orso is the perfect place to discover and explore Puglia's cuisine which is characterised by fresh fish, garlic, olive oil, tomato sauce and aromatic herbs. There is nothing better than tasting these natural products on the beach BBQ under the warm Puglian sun.

Torre Dell'Orso also offers its visitors the experience of tasting some of the finest wines in Italy - many of which never reach shop shelves as they are for local consumption only! The local grapes are Negroamaro, Primitivo (the same grape as California’s Zinfandel) and Bombino Nero which produce fruity full bodied classics such as Salice Salentino and Primitivo.
