Territories & Wineries
If a winemaker does not go home and read a book after finishing his work, he cannot make good wine.
This conviction has always co-existed with our lifestyle; we chose to be not only promoters but also producers of culture.
Our task in this area lies in the conception and production of a cultural offering that enhances the territories and promotes a variety of awareness and alternative achievement. Our vineyards and wineries become subjects and objects of cultural activity, through the art project Viaggio in Sicilia and the Theatre in the Vineyard which we have established on Etna, both parts of a structured programme in which we maintain constant investment.
Viaggio in Sicilia
in the Planeta Winery at Sciaranuova in Passopisciaro (Castiglione di Sicilia), Etna
The theatre lies a short distance from Feudo di Mezzo winery, among the vineyards of Sciara Nuova and the old press carefully restored and now used as the tasting room, which every year hosts the Sciaranuova Festival. The idea of building this natural amphitheatre and investing on our own account in a theatre production, allows us to communicate with another form of art and to found on Etna a specific project of enhancement and cultural significance.
Santa Cecilia in Musica
Il progetto è nato col desiderio di legare a quest’arte la tenuta di Noto, dove nasce il Nero d’Avola Santa Cecilia che porta il nome della nostra famiglia e della patrona della Musica.
