The family and the history

Our family has a history closely linked to the territory. For many generations we have been in those lands between Noto and Pachino where the vineyards and olive trees find their ideal natural conditions. These two arts have always been a wealth of experience handed down from father to son until today.

The place boasts ancient traces of civilization devoted to the cult of the earth and its myths like Ceres or Core and as one can deduce from the various cartographical reproductions, renowned in growing wine and olive oil and bread, ideal for the special position and possibility of defence. The dominations have been numerous due to thepeculiarity of the area: the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Arabs, the Normans, the Aragoneses and the Bourbons. All of them, in the course of centuries, have fought for this fertile soil, exposed to the sun, with a mild climate, in winter too, and set in a propitious geographical position, the centre of the Mediterranean sea, crossroad among Europe, Asia, Africa.
