Discover the Sicilian winery Rioafavara

Rioafavara is a family-run winery located in the Val di Noto region of South-east Sicily. It is one of the best wine-producing areas in Sicily. Since 1920, a lot of changes have been made to the winery, a combination of history and local traditions with the latest winemaking techniques and equipment has made it a modern and high-production winery.

The road to organic winemaking

The winemakers use biodynamic and organic farming in almost all processes in the cellar and their vineyards. The region is perfect for vine cultivation, and their famous red ones express the natural qualities of their terroir. The area has moderate warm weather with strong winds from the east and the west. The region in the southern part of Sicily, across the Siracusa and Ragusa provinces, is very near to the sea, and the calcareous soil is perfect for grape growing.

Rioafavara’s grape growing philosophy

The main philosophy of the winery is to attract customers and make them fall in love with their Sicilian wines. The winemakers concentrate and take a lot of care in their cultivation processes and the quality of grapes. It was important for the owners to reap the benefits from the gifted land. Recently, the winery has started to convert the vineyard into organic farming, they aim to produce more sustainable wines. The main varieties of grapes that grow here are Moscato and Nero d’Avola. The grapes help in the production of their famous red wines.

The grape varieties used at the Rioafavara winery represent the terroir and the genuine taste of Sicily.
