Background: The name “Ognissole”, of Greek origin, is mentioned in a poem of Leonida di Taranto (third Century B.C.) that describes this land as full of charm and covered by the sun for most of the day. Ognissole embodies the essence of Puglia where the sun and the influence of the sea give richness, character and elegance to the grapes. The logo is a detailed re-interpretation of a mosaic found in a “domus” built between the end of the third century and the beginning of the second century B.C., now stored in the National Archeological Museum of Taranto.
