Region & Vineyard Notes
Menfi is on the southwestern coast of Sicily, a unique and pristine area made up of rolling hills with different slopes, aspects and altitudes which combined with the types of soils, create many different terroirs, each ideal for a different variety. The environmental conditions at this latitude are ideal for the cultivation of grapes: the dry climate, the intense light, the influence of the sea breezes and the differences in temperatures by day and night, all combine in making the vineyards healthy and their grapes of great quality.
