History, Tradition, Knowledge
Origins are our future
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.
Places where tales become true
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. 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.
Rural village of Pettineo
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.
