Four Generation in the Winery
They have been growing vineyards in Lago Preola and Gorghi Tondi WWF natural reserve, near Mazara del Vallo, on the South-West coast of Sicily, for four generations.
Vines Grown in WWF Natural Reserve
In the two properties of Ramisella and San Nicola, in Mazara del Vallo, the extreme western part of Sicily, the rows extend for 130 hectares and overlook the horizon, cradled by the Mediterranean sea breeze. The vines are rooted in the flat land of medium-textured soil, tending to limestone, characterized by an excellent depth and permeability, and is close to the four small lakes of the Lakes Preola and Gorghi Tondi Nature Reserve. The unique and reminiscent environment gives the grapes a peculiar characteristic that only this terroir can offer, and a scenario naturally suited to sustainable viticulture.
Tenuta Gorghi Tondi Is Organic, Sulphite Free
The wines produced in the estate are born from respect and love for the land and are the fruit of almost exclusively native grapes, such as Grillo, Zibibbo, Nero d’Avola, Catarratto, Frappato, and Nerello Mascalese. They also produce international ones, such as Syrah, present in Sicily for some time, and grown organically, harvested and vinified in a non-invasive way, without the addition of chemicals or genetically modified organisms. Grapes are grown, organically and certified, without the use of any synthetic chemicals and emergency irrigation, to maintain the authentic aromas and flavors of this wonderful corner of Sicily. Going Green is an essential part of the work within a Nature reserve that helps protect flora and fauna, low impact on the environment, and sustainability.
