A Perfect Blend of Traditional and Modern Winemaking
In the thick of green hills, near the slopes of Etna, there exists the Gigliotto Winery in the certified wine region of Sicily, Italy. The magnificent landscapes, suspended between time and space, are enough to mesmerize anyone. Not just people, the microclimate of the territory gives life to several native and international grapes. Within the 6000 square meters winery, guests can experience the ancient and modern winemaking lifestyles.
Gigliotto Winery, Where Quality is a Topmost Priority
Elio Savoca owns the Gigliotto Winery, which he established in 2005, following family traditions. He built and designed the winery with natural building materials, such as wood and stone, giving the estate an ancient look. Within the cellar, modern amenities are incorporated, like temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. There is an underground room for wine ageing and refining in the French oak barriques and tonneaux, along with barrels made from chestnut wood, tracing back to old Sicilian traditions.
Award-wining Wines of the Winery
Respecting the ecosystem, Elio focuses on sustainable viticulture practices. The production staff cultivates a wide array of grapes, including fruity Chardonnay, Zibibbo, Pinot Noir, Nero D’avola, and Frappato, along with unique Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Grillo. These grapes are used to produce some of the award-winning DOC and IGP labels, comprising red, white, rose, dessert, and sparkling wines.
The famous Agriturismo Gigliotto Winery is worth enjoying. Having a 360-degree view of the lush countryside, decorated by 200 hectares of cultivated land, your journey here will temporarily take you to another world of paradise. You can stay for a while in a monastery-turned-farmhouse with 14 well-furnished rooms, a large dining hall, a swimming pool, and a meeting room where you can enjoy the aromatic wines, paired with Italian cuisine.
