An Ancient Winery in the Heart Of South-Eastern Sicily

Cantine Gulino is a family-run winery located in Siracusa, surrounded by old vineyards and lush gardens, and protected by the sea. In Contrada Fanusa, the estate owns 15 hectares of vineyards, stretched over three certified wine regions, namely Siracusa, Pachino, and Ispica. Siracusa is the home of the oldest Moscato vines dates back to the 1600s. Visiting Cantine Gulino is like discovering the true gem of South-East Sicily.

Vocation that Started in the Late 18th Century

The winemaking tale of Cantine Gulino dates back to 1793. It was when the ancestors of the family purchased the winery and millstone in Contrada Fanusa, along with the surrounding vineyards. In the 50s, the Gulino family started growing fruits and vegetables until the early 1990s when a new generation acquired the business. Sebastiano Gulino, the current owner, renovated the wine cellar and replanted the vineyards to restore ancient vine varieties. He was an otolaryngologist at first but changed his vocation to a winemaker to keep the family traditions alive.

Fertile Terroirs Surrounding Cantine Gulino

To prevent old grape varieties from extinction, Sebastiano started growing Moscato di Siracusa, Albanello, Nero d’Avola, and Insolia, some of the rarest vines in Italy. He also focuses on the cultivation of aromatic Chardonnay and Syrah. His passion for bringing back Albanello was extraordinary – Sebastiano used to sneak around the oldest vineyards of Contrada Fanusa to find Albanello, and eventually, succeeded.

Inside Cantine Gulino, there is an ancient millstone where berries were pressed in the past and an old pressing spot, adjacent to the barrel room. The owner uses wooden oak barrels for aging and refining of his wines. Visit and discover the wine excellences, together with a rich history, culture, and gastronomic heritage.
