From the hills up to the sea, our territory is all around wine

Our family is deeply bonded to its territory of which our wines are pure expression.

That’s why we would like you discover the amazing sites in the surrounding.

Our estate vineyards’ in Partinico are located on the highest hills facing the Gulf of Castellammare. The area of Camporeale is the most vocated one to viticolture in the neighbourhood of Palermo. This is a place rich in story and in rural and culinary traditions to which belong the villages of San Giuseppe Jato, San Cipirello, Roccamena, Grisì and the district of Monreale, with their naturalistic beauties not to miss.

Camporeale, City of Wine and Wood, is a small farming village at the foot of the hills in the Mandranova’s valley, one of the most vocated area to high quality vine-growing in Western Sicily. Since 60’s we have been cultivating grapes in this stunning bucolic scenary.

In this place, falls one of the most ancient denomination of Italy, the DOC Alcamo. A denomination which groups all peculiarities of a wine territory that covers the provinces of Palermo and Trapani.

Partinico is set right in the area and tells its connection with wine through one of the oldest building, the Royal Bourbon Winery. Built in the 19th century by the king of the Two Sicilies, Ferdinando the Ist, it was a charming and unique place to visit and where organise exclusive events. It is one of the most important trace of the Bourbonic lineage upon the Island.

Despite of its recent construction, Borgo Parrini deserves a visit: abandoned in 60’s, in the last period, it is definitely a place of attraction for tourists and not only. Thanks to his creativity and intuition, the artist Giuseppe Gaglio, taking inspiration from the Spanish architect Gaudì, recovered it through decorations, paints and mosaics made of pieces of Sicilian tiles.

What would Sicily be without its sea? Castellammare del Golfo, in front of which our highest vineyards of Catarratto is nestled, is one of the most charming fisherman village of Italy. Beloved both by locals and tourists, it is well known for the variety of its coasts, rocky bays and beaches, as well as for its culinary traditions: fresh fish, “pane cunzatu” and a typical Sicilian dessert cassatella with ricotta cheese.

The nearby of our winery are rich in history, ancient traditions and nature trails unfolding up and down, from the sea up to the hills. We already gave you a taste and we can’t wait longer to welcome you all once again at the winery.

Soon all the news on the reopening, stay tuned!
