The Puglia wine region is the largest wine-producing region in Italy and lies in the south-eastern corner of the country. It has a Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and mild winters, while its temperatures are slightly moderated by sea breezes. The region itself is often divided into three distinct viticulture areas, which are roughly the areas around the cities of Foggia, Bari and Lecce.
Red wine grapes dominate the region and among the most common types are Primitivo, Negroamaro and Uva di Troia. Primitivo, in particular, tends to be used to produce distinctive, full-bodied wines, with high alcohol content. Meanwhile, Bombino Bianco and Trebbiano Toscano rank among the most common white wine grape varieties in Puglia, although white wine only accounts for around 20 percent of the region's total output.
