LOCOROTONDO-APULIA-the PALMENTO takes its name from Palmentum, the ancient structure of Roman origin which served to crushing grapes. This was located in an old village ("u chiazzeil") dating from the period from 1780 to 1820 and was available to families that lived. Within the village (one of the few local traditions that had been fenced), everyone could take advantage of common goods such as the oven, the stables, the Hague, water wells and there was the possibility to share moments of life and daily and seasonal activities. The millstone was the main point in this village, a rural building intended for vinification, where each family had their own "capasoni" and could work for the production of its wines. Structurally within this great space was post a masonry tank where the grapes were crushed by the force of stamping feet, and from which, through a canaletto, all squeezing fruit was going to end up in a cistern, where started to ferment. You can count two rooms that communicated by a hole whose function was to take the juice to reduce it and produce the "cooked". The concentration of grape must was a very important step because the production of white wine to avoid chemical additives. Over the years many families that inhabited the village emigrated and family bought the property it Fats (Bangi Sabatelli).
