FEUDI DEL PISCIOTTO

Feudi del Pisciotto is located at the very heart of Sicily, just a few kilometers from Caltagirone and Piazza Armerina. The winery includes a new and modern building, the very core of production, capable of processing up to 10,000 hectoliters of wine and an ancient feud. The feud dates back to the Eighteenth century and at the time it was one of the largest of Sicily. The old building includes the millstone, from the Latin word paumentum Which conjures up the movement of the grape press by force of gravity, today Considered one of the best technique. Restored without any modifi cations, the millstone is directly connected to the modern cellar.

Style and art are also the soul of this brand; the labels of the bottles produced are in fact designed by the greatest Italian designers such as Versace, Missoni, and Valli.

The Sicilian vineyard is divided into three great districts: the western one of Trapanese with the famous wines of Marsala, the north-eastern one with the wines of Etna and the southern one with the products of the Ragusano.

With its wines, this region bears witness to a centuries-old vocation to viticulture, which has its roots already in the times of the Greeks. Today the Sicilian oenological production is experiencing an important turning point: the valorisation of the potentialities not yet fully expressed on the island
