FAMILY HERITAGE

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

Wine has flowed through our veins since we were kids. Our father came from Marsala, the homeland of Sicilian winemaking, our grandfathers were originally from the land of Cerasuolo instead so our childhood is spent between home and winery while the harvests were running quickly or waiting for the must become wine.

 

MORE THAN
simple 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.

TERRITORY AND HISTORY
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.
