Winery and point of reference for the viticultural territory of Southern Italy which was the first to produce in Daunia products obtained through the Classic Method. In about forty years of activity it offers high quality wines with the almost exclusive use of grapes grown in the countryside of San Severo such as Bombino Bianco and Montepulciano. Two fundamental varieties for the entire production range, acquired partly also from local producers, 60% of which are used in all Cuvées, the rest is integrated by the Pinot Nero alloctono.
It all started in 1979 with the sharing of the wine experiences of the families of the three partners: Girolamo D’Amico, Louis Rapini and Ulrico Priore. Fundamental to Louis, who assimilated the job following his father in France when he worked in a winery in Champagne, also those of Girolamo and Ulrico in recognizing the potential of their territory while supporting parents in the production of local wines. From their initials comes the name D’Araprì. Together they were the pioneers in raising Bombino Bianco, an ancient white variety brought to the area by the Crusaders, from the usual dry white wine to a high quality Spumante, giving luster to the whole area. In the cellar and in the vineyard a precise set of rules: the use of only the flower must from the grapes planted in the area, temperatures below 20 °C, draft within the month of March of the following year and a prolonged stop on the yeasts.
