Wineries in Puglia are easily accessible by different means of transportation.

By Air

If you want to get to wineries in Puglia by plane, the two main airports in the region are Bari Airport (BRI) and the Airport of Salento in Brindisi (BDS). Bari, the capital city of Puglia, serves the northern part of the region, while Brindisi Airport is about two and a half hours south and its closer to the beautiful area of Salento. 

By Car

If you want to travel to wineries in Puglia by car, the motorways that connect Puglia to Italy (and are free from Bari to Taranto) are essentially two: 

  • A14 route linking Bologna to Taranto passing through the major towns of northern and central Apulia

  • A16 route connecting Naples to Canosa passing through the Apennines

Driving around wineries in Puglia can be an incredible experience as you can fully take advantage of the fascinating landscapes of the region. If you don't want to drive all the way to the 'heel' of Italy, you can rent a car in one of the airports of the region or at the train station in Bari.

By Train

Trains are a great way to get to Puglia. You can get a high-speed train, either Frecciarossa or Italo, from all the major Italian cities to Bari and then use the regional rail services to get closer to wineries in Puglia.

Julie August 23, 2021
Would definitely recommend this experience We found the wine tasting experience 10/10, booking was really easy and good communication. There was a little confusion at first when we arrived, lost in translation or we didn't give enough information. but was rectified very quickly by the staff. I think it was Catia who gave us the (second ) wine tasting. She was excellent and very knowledgeable. The museum was very interesting and was great to hear about the history of the wines in the area.
