Tenuta La Favola, a Winery at the Southernmost Point of Sicily
Tenuta La Favola is situated in the countryside south of Noto, in the southernmost point of Sicily, in an area called Buonivini. The imposing vineyards, olive plantation, stone walls, and experimental organic fields cover an area of 19 hectares. The streets between the rows of vines are white with limestone, and so at night, the land shines with the moon.
Giuseppe Di Natale, a Man with a Vision
In the 1800s, Giuseppe Di Natale moved from Syracuse to Pachino. He bought several properties including the Buonivini estate, where he cultivated Nero d’Avola vines, olive plantation, and carob trees. In 1908, Don Corrado, son of Giuseppe took over the family business and continued his father’s work with great passion and dedication. When Corrado’s daughter Maria got married, he passed the estate to his daughter and son-in-law as a dowry. They expanded the business and later in 2002, changed the name of the winery to Tenuta La Favola.
