Country: Agrigento - Sicily
The uncontaminated area of Sambuca di Sicilia is a rich land with ancient vineyards, heirs of a thousand-year-old tradition. A place with clear skies, thanks to the absence of factories or other polluting activities, a lake with its crystal-clear water called Lake Arancio, and a perfect microclimate, thanks to important temperature ranges even during summer. These are the perfect conditions for a viticulture characterized by unique qualities.
Lying on a hill, Sambuca di Sicilia is in the Belice Valley, where a lush vegetation surrounds the town, rich of myths and local legends. The origin of the name came from his founder, the Arab emir Al Zabuth the Charming, who gave to the town a great impetus for the revival of agriculture. The country was cultivate since the ancient times and there are lots of archaeological finds that show how during the centuries, generations of farmers reached high quality targets, always in respect with the nature.
Vineyards without boundaries
The art of winemaking can create nothing more than what the grapes contain in nature: this is the reason why our wines are so good, vines completely integrated with the soil, since the ancient times, finding a unique natural habitat; the experience and passion of the farmers,
who live together with the vines 365 days a year and love and care about them as they love and care about a newly born child; the chance to survive during the terribly hot Sicilian summers, thanks to the generous water supply of Lake Arancio, the everyday silence interrupted only by the soft swish of the wind blades. A fantastic team, made of experienced agronomists and winemakers, whose task is to put into a bottle the peculiar qualities of the grapes.
