The Milazzo family way of “winemaking” is the tireless work in the vineyard. The natural meticulous improvement in the vine types is the fruit of a route that started out over fifty years ago and is still travelling on today: the search for the perfect combination between selecting the clones, the choice of the subsoils and the microclimate’s characteristics in each part of the vineyards. Milazzo's organic certification shows the commitment as winemakers to produce quality wines that also attests the responsibility for the environment.
The grapes are grown at 400 metres above sea level in the South of Sicily on the hills to the north-east of Campobello di Licata. A grape growing area with a colorful mosaic of soils and the influence of a typical Mediterranean climate that make wines with such an identity and an original character.
