Pantelleria, island of sun and wind

A territory where nature is extreme

On the volcanic island of Pantelleria, we carry out a project of sustainability and heroic viticulture. Our vineyards are located in various districts that differ in soil (sandy and of volcanic origin), altitude (from 20 m to 400 m a.s.l.),  exposure, microclimate and age of the plants, including some examples of hundred-year-old vines.  

Pantelleria alberello

Symbol of creative and sustainable agriculture

On Pantelleria we cultivate  Zibibbo, a prince among the aromatic varieties, on the Pantelleria alberello, the only agricultural practice which, due to its creative and sustainable nature, has Unesco Cultural Heritage Status. The vine grows inside hollows, with a pruning system that allows the plant to take a horizontal course, almost creeping along the ground, which makes it possible for the plants to resist the wind.

Heroic viticulture

A project full of passion and commitment

On Pantelleria, viticulture requires dedication and care: the sloping lands, cultivated on terraces bordered by drystone walls made of lavic stone and the vines cultivated on Pantelleria alberellos, keep us busy every day. A context that requires a very high amount of manpower, about three times the average requirement of a quality-oriented vineyard, without counting the maintenance of about 40 km of drystone walls.

Ben Ryé, son of the wind

Symbol of the island's heroic viticulture

One of the most appreciated natural sweet wines in the world comes from Pantelleria, Ben Ryé, the result of a tailor-made productive process. During the first manual harvest, the grapes are carefully selected and destined for natural drying in the sun on drying racks. The must obtained from the grapes of the second harvest the hand-picked  grapes are added during fermentation, and these release all their aromatic potential.
