Teanum was founded in 2000 in San Paolo di Civitate, a small city close to Foggia, Apulia. Our initial idea was to restore a 1970’s winery, whose sole focus was on bulk wine production. However, soon after the start of work we let ourselves be guided by the ambition to make our wines recognizable, so we decided to invest in bottling. For this purpose, we also bought a second winery, located as well in the province of Foggia, but this time in the district Predicatella, the town of San Severo.
Our brand identity is based on Apulian history, from the logo in the Romanesque style with serif typefaces and a pila (the Roman javelin), to the products’ storytelling, up to the names of Teanum wine lines.
The link with the territory is evident also from the Brand’s name, which is inspired from Teanum Apulum, the Roman municipium built on the ruins of Tiati. The latter was the ancient city of San Paolo di Civitate – i.e where our story begins, and that gives the name to our finest line of wines. Tiati’s ancient coins are reported on the labels of our best bottles: Gran Tiati, Metodo Classico and Gold Vintage PDO Reserve.
Today, Teanum wines are present in most of the key markets in the sector, with an annual production of 1.5 million bottles.
