palménto [unknown origin]. - 1. A large and shallow trough with brick or cement walls or dug in the ground from impermeable rock, used for pressing and fermenting grape juice in Southern Italy, particularly in Puglia, Calabria and Sicily.

This is our story.
A typical Salento house of the early twentieth century, with the ground floor set up as a palmento, a place where, after the grape harvest, the whole village would bring their grapes to put them through all the wine making production phases.
The palmento was not only a place of work but also a place for meeting and socializing.

The current owners, Susanna and Roberto, fell in love with the house at first sight and transformed it into a small but charming bed-and-breakfast.

The careful and skillful restoration has married the ancient atmosphere with the most modern eco-sustainable technologies.
