Our Story

Our winery dates back to 1920, 16 hectares of vineyards distributed in different plots. We have chosen to produce wines from natural and organic agriculture using only native Sicilian vines and moving away from the concept of mono varietal wines!

In this area some vines express unique characteristics, the Nero d’Avola for the DOC Eloro and Noto becomes the absolute protagonist and the district claims its historical primacy in the production with reds with an intensely Mediterranean character, generous in alcohol content but also lavish in nuances and juiciness. Wines that need quite long periods to become expressive.

The white vines including Moscato Bianco for DOC Moscato di Noto, Moscato Giallo, and finally Grillo as well as some relic vines, stimulate us a lot in the creation of interesting and characterful white wines.

The oenological territory shows a sort of ideal triangle which has its western vertex in Ispica and the last stretch of the Ionian coast under Syracuse as its east side, that is the coast between Avola and Pachino. Right around Noto, Pachino and Ispica there are the viticultural districts with the most consolidated reputation with evident volcanic matrices; San Lorenzo and Sichilli on the coast between Marzamemi and the Vendicari oasis, a few meters from the sea, where the texture of the sandy soils is thinner than ever; San Basilio, Buonivini, Miucia, Baroni, Costefredde, Burgio and Biduri in the immediate hinterland, on limestone soils, light and clear, of a sometimes dazzling white, sometimes flat sometimes on small hills;

“This calcareous matrix, combined with particularly fine textures, over time has distinguished these districts as the ideal habitat for the best Nero d’Avola with reds that are both wild and nuanced with a juicy sanguine fragrance, where the expressive character of the Mediterranean scrub is often embellished with an original iodized tone “
