That is a unique territory. The landscape is kissed by the sun, exposed to marine breeze in mild temperatures and gives extraordinary grapes. The northern natural boundary of the area follows the Erei mounts, the southern the Mediterranean sea, the eastern the Iblei mounts and the western the hills of Caltanissetta province.

The soils are ideal for autoctone grapes that give the Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOGS, local wine “par excellence”, it is strongly tied to the powerful beauty of the vines, landscape and winery of the region of origin.
Along ancient bagli (fortified farms surrounded by mighty walls) ultramodern wineries blend perfectly into the landscape, thanks to the sustainable development policy adopted by producers in creating one agricultural comprensorio (a district that comprises lands of different nature and proprietors but with a unique purpose) famous in the world.
