Not far from the city of Brindisi are the ruins of the monastery of Paolo Eremita, its founder. Walking among the ruins you can still perceive the spirituality of ancient times and enjoy the reverential silence that the place imposes. Near the outer walls, close to the former entrance door, there is the small courtyard where you can admire a small altar made of brass, incredibly inviolate. This was the altar where the winemakers and peasants, at the beginning of the season, deposited their supplications receiving the blessing for their work. Corte Ottone is inspired by this legend, celebrating those winemakers who have been able to preserve and pass on to us the precious grapes that give life to this wine.
