O nas

In the heart of the province of Agrigento there is a unique territory where growing vines dates back to long long time ago.  Over 1,000 hectares of cultivated vineyards and over 60 different growing areas, each with unique pedoclimatic conditions where the vineyards are still mixed with cereal fields. The harvest takes places in August, when the sun, that made this piece of land so harsh yet generous, makes the manual harvest even more challenging.
