i fratelli longo

Una famiglia nata ai piedi del Gargano, in Apricena, nell’Alta Daunia: la famiglia Longo. Due fratelli che, dopo anni di duro lavoro nelle vigne con il proprio padre, hanno deciso di produrre e commercializzare il frutto di tanti sacrifici donando tutta l’esperienza e la passione maturate nella nascita di vini di qualità. Salvatore e Luigi oggi sono alla guida della Cantina Santissimo – Terre di Federico II, un’azienda nata per soddisfare le esigenze di appassionati e professionisti del mondo dell’enologia e della ristorazione, dai vini ai prosecchi al vino dolce, un percorso che, fin da subito, ha riscosso un grande successo.

Landing at Winery Organic was the fulfillment of a vision. I believe wholeheartedly in our mission and approach to wines because that’s how I like to live my life: simply and driven to excel. As Director of Hospitality & Sales, I am responsible for leading guest relations and helping grow the Flâneur winery. When I’m not traveling and forging new sales partnerships, you’ll find me splitting my time between hosting guest tastings and designing the Grain Elevator—or watching Seinfeld or playing guitar.

I’ve always been a wine drinker, but I’d never thought that I’ll ever be a wine maker. It all started with helping Bruno harvest the winery’s first vintage. I immediately fell in love with the process and decided to start working here full time. Never looked back ever since!

My knowledge of wine began in a small
Italian restaurant. The all-Italian staff painted a vivid
picture of what wine meant to them: family, memories, and traditions.

Growing grapes didn’t start as a passion for me; at first, it was just a job. But the more I did it and the more I learned, the more I became personally invested in the land and the vines. I found my calling being outdoors.

Rotating seasonal jobs took me as far north as Alaska, where I guided outdoor adventure trips and fished for salmon, and to the Southern Hemisphere where I worked in vineyards.
I made vineyard management my career and I’ve never considered anything else.
