It is true of all good wines, and especially ours, that it is the vines and the grapes they bear that give a wine its unique and very special characteristics. Our vineyards lie at the heart of our endeavours.
Our white grape vineyards are all located in the western part of Sicilia, just slightly inland from Marsala. Vines are planted east facing with a vertical trellis system, on sandy and clay-rich soil. Because of Sicilys favourable climate, vintages are generally quite consistent from year to year and these grapes are usually harvested in late August.
Our red grape vineyards are located in central Sicilia, in the province of Caltanissetta, at about 500 metres above sea level. This altitude, together with the distance from the Sea, provides for excellent diurnal variety. The combination of the warm Sicilian sun and the fresh, cool evenings ensures perfect conditions for fruit ripening. Vines are planted south facing, following the vertical trellis system, and vintages only change very slightly, depending on the rainfall during or just before harvest time in the first half of September.
