Pupilo combines tradition with modern technology

The Pupillo wine estate was established in 1908 on the land that used to be Targia, Frederick II’s medieval castle, Solacium’s site. The ancient vines and olive trees here have been used perfectly by the Pupillo family to make world-class wines and olive oil. Nino Pupillo has devoted most of his life to preserve his ancestor’s vineyards and make wines. His mission was to revitalize the native Moscato grape, and his children continue the work. The winery uses the perfect combination of traditional methods and modern technology to make Nero d’Avola and Moscato wines.

Ideal soil and microclimate for viticulture

Nino Pupillos is helped by Carmela and Sebastiano Pupillo in running the winery. The estate is near Megara Hyblaea, and the land stretches for more than 250 acres. Their vineyards are divided int six plots: Podere 27, Vignazza del Monache, Favaraggio, Senie, Mulino, and Tre Ettari. The soil here is rich in limestone that helps in giving the right structure and complexion to the wines. Moscato Bianco, Nero d’Avola, and Catarratto Bianco Lucido are grown to make their delicious red, white, rose, and sparkling wines.

The winery’s products reflect their rich history and terroir

All the grapes are handpicked and brought to the cellar for vinification. The grapes are pressed and fermented using the best techniques to ensure that the wines attain the desired fruity taste and strong aroma. Their wines perfectly reflect the culture and rich heritage of Syracuse. Tradition and respect are important values for the company, and wine lovers can visit to experience it first-hand.
