Tenuta Bastonaca - Bastonaca Winery
Looking towards the Future but firmly rooted in Tradition
Our winery takes its name from “Contrada Bastonaca”, a district which has always been considered the heart of the production of Cerasuolo di Vittoria, Frappato and Nero d’Avola.
In this land, full of wine stories, you will nd our young and modern winery whose roots are deeply embedded in the local wine-making tradition.
The winery is located inside an ancient millstone of the Eighteenth century, where you get the sensation of being welcomed by the unmistakeable fragrant aroma of freshly pressed grapes and boiling must.
All around, spread over an area of 15 hectares, head-trained bush vines renew a glorious past, but at the same time, look towards a promising future.
A thousand ancient olive trees of the rare variety Carolea, with their silver-green foliage fully exalt the extraordinary chromatic shades of our vineyards.
We grow with love Frappato and Nero d’Avola, Grenache and Tannat, combining tradition and innovation, driven by great passion and curiosity.
Our vineyards are cultivated in conversion to organic farming, by hand, with sweat and toil, in a vision of natural farming.
We do not irrigate the soil so to ensure that each grape can keep inside itself the warmth of the land and its wonderful sunshine, elements that make our wine and our Sud unique.
Another dream was ful lled: we have recently acquired a 1 hectare plot of 50 year-old-vines of Nerello Mascalese and Cappuccio placed in Castiglione di Sicilia (Solicchiata district), near Mount Etna, the biggest active volcano in Europe, a place of extreme beauty and strong emotions. Only natural and recyclable raw materials are used, because environmental protection is our rst goal. This is our intent and that of Carlo Ferrini, agronomist and oenologist of exquisite sensitivity, who strongly supports our daily hard work.
