wine and humans linked by common history



Thanks to the countess of Modica Vittoria Colonna Henriquez from which our city took its name, during the XVII centuries the winemaking has been greatly improved.

There’s a little rural place within the classic making area of Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG where all things have been started.


Raised with the wine flows through the veins we have continued the family business with passion and love which are the main features of our job

Since we were children wine has flowed through our veins. Our father came from Marsala, the homeland of Sicilian winemaking, our grandfathers were originally from the land of Cerasuolo instead. Our childhood is spent between home and winery chasing quick harvests or waiting for the must that became wine.

Our farming is organic and sustainable. We love and keep the tradition and our history. We’ve learned from our ancestors. All of that has inspired our job.

Vigna di Pettineo is one of the most ancient and prestigious production areas of Cerasuolo di Vittoria D.O.C.G. so it’s recognized as a classic area. Massimo Maggio the owner wanted to begin his project using his family heritage and his passion as a winemaker. He wants to make a wine that can show the land of Hyblean hills.

follow the wine

The ancient Greek settlers imported Sicily vines and the first techniques to make wine. After the foundation of the city of Vittoria, which dates back to 1607, this land becomes the first area of wine production on the Island.

Vittoria Colonna Henriquez the countess of Modica due king’s permit founded the new city above the ruins of the ancient Greek settlement of Kamarina. She has promised 1 hectare to every new citizen that would farm vines. In this way, wine production has been improved greatly and never stops in time. 

Organic farming, handpicked grapes and centuries of heritage also a huge passion are all our strengths to make excellent Sicilian wine.

A fabulous afternoon spent at this incredible vineyard. The most knowledgeable of guides (grazie Davide!) who patiently explained the many varieties of grape and processes to produce the most wonderful wine. We finished with a delicious lunch accompanied by various Pettineo wines. Cannot recommend highly enough - this lovely place is well worth a visit!

Beautiful organic estate, with a mature vineyard and orange groves. Davide gave us a tour around the estate, and shared his knowledge with enthusiasm! Really enjoyable and wish we had more time on our hands! Best part was the wine tasting! And the cold red wine, which was a first for all of us! Food pairing was abundant and nicely presented! Thank you Davide and keep up the great service!
