We carry on with the section “History & Territory” of the Guarini Wine Journey. After having told you about the descent of the Hauteville in Puglia during the Eleventh century and the County of Lecce with Tancred of Hauteville, who founded a new monastery of Benedictine monks in Lecce, in whose constitution act dated 1180 appear the Bishop Pietro Guarino and Accardo, owner of a vineyard granted to the monastery, we move to the age of the family Orsini del Balzo, princes of Taranto, between the end of ‘300 and the first half of ‘400. In the book “Un Principato territoriale del Regno di Napoli? Gli Orsini del Balzo Principi di Taranto (1399-1463)”- A Territorial Principality in the Kingdom of Naples?
